Ultra wide bandwidth receiver

We are constructing a state-of-the-art ultra-wide-band receiver and signal processing system for the Parkes 64m radio telescope. The receiver will operate across the entire 700 MHz to 4 GHz band with outstanding sensitivity and polarimetric performance, providing a unique capability for high-time resolution wide-bandwidth astronomy. It will deliver enhanced science outcomes for a wide range of projects and greatly improve the telescope's operational efficiency, extending its lifetime into the Square Kilometre Array era. Key science projects include tests of theories of relativistic gravitation, including the search for gravitational waves, probing neutron star interiors and investigations of the magnetic structure of our Galaxy
