RadioNet campaign for visibility of EC / H2020 funding

RadioNet has produced a plaque that will make visible to the general public the EC/H2020 support of the RadioNet partners´ infrastructures. In July, the plaques have just been installed at a prominent and visible place at the 32-m telescope EVN-Noto (Noto/IT) and at the main quarter of IRAM (Grenoble/FR), which is visited by most of [...]

(Re)solving the jet/cocoon riddle of a gravitational wave event

An international research team has combined radio telescopes from five continents on 12 March 2018 to prove the existence of a narrow stream of material, a so-called jet, emerging from the only gravitational wave event involving two neutron stars observed so far. The research leading to these results has received funding from RadioNet under the [...]

International LOFAR Telescope Regular Proposal Call

The International LOFAR Telescope (ILT) is a powerful next-generation radio telescope for frequencies below 240 MHz that offers revolutionary new observing capabilities thanks to its phased-array technology with digital beam-forming. LOFAR delivers correlated visibility data for synthesis imaging, plus in/coherently added single and multiple station data (several beam-formed modes) as well as transient buffer read-out, [...]

The HI content of isolated ultra-diffuse galaxies

Results from the use of Effelsberg under RadioNet TA program.   Ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) are notable for their extreme low surface brightness nature and extended radii; they have the stellar mass and appearance of dwarf spheroidal galaxies but the stellar radii of larger galaxies like the Milky Way. While UDGs were originally identified in the [...]

e-MERLIN call for proposals until 16/11/17 – 23:59:59 UT

e-MERLIN requests proposals from the international astronomical community for observations to be made during Cycle-6. Proposals are competitively peer-reviewed under standard STFC rules by the PATT e-MERLIN Time Allocation Committee. Allocation will be made on the basis of scientific merit and technical feasibility alone. During e-MERLIN operations ~50% of observing time has been allocated to [...]
