Receiver Chip for the Australian SKA Radio Telescope

Project overview

The Centre for Technology Infusion has developed a low noise amplifier for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope.

An issue that arises when constructing telescope receivers is the level of noise the system emits, which may interfere with signals being received. The Centre for Technology Infusion has developed a low noise amplifier and mid band Receiver for the Australian Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope. The amplifier offers two orders of magnitude increase in sensitivity over existing facilities at metre to centimetre wavelengths.
