New calibration technique circumvents Earth’s ionosphere

An international team of researchers has developed a new calibration technique to circumvent disturbances of Earth’s ionosphere. Using this technique with the LOFAR telescope, the researchers have already made some new discoveries about the distribution of radio emissions.

The new calibration technique allowed the researchers to produce the first sharp radio maps of the universe at low frequencies (16-30 MHz).

According to the researchers, the new calibration technique makes it possible to study phenomena that were previously hidden. It might be used to detect exoplanets orbiting small stars. More information about the findings of the research team can be found here.
