NenuFAR, the New Extension in Nancay Upgrading LOFAR, is currently in its early science phase. It is in this context that the Cosmic Filaments and Magnetism Pilot Survey is observing sources with the array as it is still under construction—with 57 (56 core, 1 distant) out of a total planned 102 (96 core, 6 distant) mini-arrays online at the time of observation—to get a first look at the low-frequency sky with NenuFAR. One of its targets is the Coma galaxy cluster: a well-known object, host of…

A High-Resolution Survey of the Coma Cluster of Galaxies at 408 Mc./s.

IN December 1958 an area of sky including the Coma cluster of galaxies was surveyed using the 250-ft. radio telescope at Jodrell Bank1 with a Dicke-type radiometer, pass-band 408 ± 2 Mc./s., and

The Coma Cluster at LOw Frequency ARray Frequencies. I. Insights into Particle Acceleration Mechanisms in the Radio Bridge

Radio synchrotron emission from the bridges of low-density gas connecting galaxy clusters and groups is a challenge for particle acceleration processes. In this work, we analyze the Coma radio bridge

The diffuse radio emission from the Coma cluster at 2.675 GHz and 4.85 GHz

We present new measurements of the diuse radio halo emission from the Coma cluster of galaxies at 2.675 GHz and 4.85 GHz using the Eelsberg 100-m telescope. After correction for the contribution from

30. 9 MHz observations of the radio halo in the coma cluster of galaxies

The diffuse radio emission in the central part of the Coma cluster of galaxies has been extensively studied at relatively high radio frequencies, but the information available at low frequencies is

The diffuse radio emission from the Coma cluster at 2.675 GHz and 4.85 GHz

. We present new measurements of the diffuse radio halo emission from the Coma cluster of galaxies at 2.675 GHz and 4.85 GHz using the Effelsberg 100–m telescope. After correction for the contribution

THE COMA CLUSTER OF GALAXIES

General remarks, The following study is a part of a long series of investigations which the author has carried out with the 18-inch and the 48-inch schmidt telescopes to analyze the geometrical

wsclean: an implementation of a fast, generic wide-field imager for radio astronomy

Astronomical widefield imaging of interferometric radio data is computationally expensive, especially for the large data volumes created by modern non-coplanar many-element arrays. We present a new

A broad-band flux scale for low-frequency radio telescopes

We present parametrized broad-band spectral models valid at frequencies between 30 and 300 MHz for six bright radio sources selected from the 3C survey, spread in right ascension from 0 to 24 h. For

An Accurate Flux Density Scale from 50 MHz to 50 GHz

The flux-density scale of Perley & Butler is extended downward to ∼50 MHz by utilizing recent observations with the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) of 20 sources between 220 MHz and 48.1 GHz,

Revisiting the radio interferometer measurement equation. II. Calibration and direction-dependent effects

This paper aims to describe both classical radio interferometric calibration (selfcal and related methods), and the recent developments in the treatment of DDEs, using the RIME-based mathematical framework developed in Paper I, and demonstrates the ease with which the various effects can be described and understood.
