The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project is an international effort to build the world's most sensitive radio telescope operating in the 50 MHz to 14 GHz frequency range. Construction of the SKA is divided into phases, with the first phase (SKA1) accounting for the first 10% of the telescope's receiving capacity. During SKA1, a Low-Frequency Aperture Array (LFAA) comprising over a hundred thousand individual dipole antenna elements will be constructed in Western Australia (SKA1-LOW), while an… 

The mid-frequency Square Kilometre Array phase synchronisation system

Tests show that the phase synchronisation system selected for use by the Mid-Frequency Square Kilometre Array can operate within specification over all the required operating conditions, including maximum fibre link distance, temperature range, temperature gradient, relative humidity, wind speed, seismic resilience, electromagnetic compliance, frequency offset, and other operational requirements.



Square Kilometre Array Telescope—Precision Reference Frequency Synchronisation via 1f-2f Dissemination

A frequency reference dissemination and synchronisation scheme in which the phase-noise compensation function is applied at the client site, thus forming a star-shaped topology to satisfy the SKA requirements.

Astronomical Verification of a Stabilized Frequency Reference Transfer System for the Square Kilometer Array

In order to meet its cutting-edge scientific objectives, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) telescope requires high-precision frequency references to be distributed to each of its antennas. The

Phase Transfer for Radio Astronomy Interferometers, Over Installed Fiber Networks, Using a Round-Trip Correction System

Abstract : The MERLIN telescope, based at Jodrell Bank, achieves coherent operation using a frequency standard transmitted over microwave links. This system is locally known as the "Lband Link"

A Clock for the Square Kilometre Array

The Square Kilometre Array telescope will be the largest and most complex astronomical instrument to date, with individual antennas spread across continental scales. One of the most complex technical

The ALMA Photonic Local Oscillator system

The Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) Central Local Oscillator (LO) system generates and distributes all of the LO and timing references for ALMA. These are used by the Front End and Back End

The Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array

The scientific drivers, technical challenges, and planned progress of ALMA are outlined, with a focus on the Atacama Desert.

Square Kilometre Array: The radio telescope of the XXI century

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope. It will address fundamental unanswered questions about our Universe including how the first stars and

Phase Stability Measurement of an Optical Two-Tone Signal Applied to a Signal Reference Source for Millimeter and Sub-Millimeter Wave Interferometer

Local signal generation with high phase stability is one of the key elements of an interferometer system. In the ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array) project, we have plans to generate

Fiber optic frequency transfer link

A stabilized fiber-optic reference frequency distribution system has been fabricated and tested. The distribution system is designed to transmit a 100-MHz reference signal, which is generated by a

A 920-Kilometer Optical Fiber Link for Frequency Metrology at the 19th Decimal Place

Synchronize Watches Time standards based on the energy-level transitions of atoms and ions provide the most accurate and precise methods of time keeping. Measurements made in one laboratory and in
