Detection of Spectral Lines with MWA

By Daniel Bartels • February 18th, 2015

MWA is a radio interferometer with a unique property – high surface brightness and high spacial resolution at the same time. This makes it an ideal instrument for studying the diffuse emission of galactic gas in radio recombination lines (RRL). This signal is faint and generally very difficult to observe. We have observed a widemore…
