Phased-Array Feed for Parkes
by Simon Johnston (CASS)
In a few days time this beautiful Phased-Array Feed (PAF) - shown above in the CSIRO Marsfield lab - will be transported to Parkes and hoisted up into the 64-m Parkes telescope focus cabin. Before that can happen, the powerful 21-cm multibeam receiver (link) needs to be taken down. After operating the PAF on Parkes it will be shipped to Germany in October 2016, where it will be installed at the famous 100-m Effelsberg telescope, run by the Max Planck Institut for Radioastronomy (MPIfR) in Bonn.
