Radio Interferometry is an essential method for astronomical observations. Self-calibration techniques have increased the quality of the radio astronomical observations (and hence the science) by orders of magnitude. Recently, there is a drive towards sensor arrays built using inexpensive hardware and distributed over a wide area acting as radio(More)

The purpose of the project described in this paper was to develop a procedure to determine odour emissions at existing and new intensive animal farming houses. The procedure should be scientifically valid and preferably applicable on a large scale at reasonable costs. In this project odour emissions were measured during one year at the same farm.(More)
We propose a significant German participation in LOFAR, the LOw Frequency Array, which is under construction in the Netherlands. The German contribution should consist of about six early LOFAR Remote Stations and a LOFAR Science Network. In order to reach the required resolution and sensitivity in “Phase II” (2009-2012) another 6 stations or more should be(More)
We present multi-frequency polarization observations of the diffuse radio synchrotron background modulated by Faraday rotation. No total intensity is observed, indicating that total intensity does not vary on scales below approximately a degree. However, polarized intensity and polarization angle show abundant smallscale structure due to Faraday rotation in(More)
Many successful examples of biomimetic products are available, and most research efforts in this emerging field are directed towards the development of specific applications. The theoretical and conceptual underpinnings of the knowledge transfer between biologists, engineers and architects are, however, poorly investigated. The present article addresses(More)
