NRAO Colloquium

Date: Fri. 27 Jan, 2017 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour
Location: NRAO

Keith Vanderlinde of the Dunlap Institute is the guest speaker for the NRAO-Socorro colloquium. His talk is titled "The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME)." Vanderlinde will introduce CHIME, an ambitious new radio telescope in British Columbia, Canada. CHIME is a transit interferometer designed to measure the BAO via 21cm line emission, covering a bandwidth of 400-800MHz, corresponding to a redshift range of 0.8 < z 2.5. It is composed of four 20m x 100m parabolic reflectors which focus radiation in one direction (east-west) while interferometry is used to resolve beams in the other (north-south). Earth rotation sweeps these beams across the sky, resulting in complete daily coverage of the northern celestial hemisphere. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center.
