Basic Techniques of Radio Astronomy

Radio-astronomy involves radio data collection from astronomical objects using an instrument called radio telescope and further processing this data using techniques like image-processing. A set of 11 lectures dealing with this subject in a comprehensive manner can be found in the underlying link. The audience are expected to be either Engineer graduates or Masters Physics, who are deeply interested in learning these engineering techniques used in radio-astronomy.

Radio Astronomy

Book Title : Radio Astronomy : An Introduction
Author : Shubhendu Joardar
Publishers : Merc Leaning Publishers (USA) - Copyright Year : 2016
Review : Based on my lectures delivered at various places including GMRT.Interested audience include (i) students, (ii) astronomers, (iii) engineers, and (iv) academicians. It begins with the foundation of radio astronomy and then goes on to explain the fundamentals, polarization, designing radio telescopes, understanding radio arrays, interferometers, receiving systems, mapping techniques, image processing and propagation effects in relation to radio astronomy. A special chapter presents the GMRT radio array as an example of explained techniques.Two appendix at the end describe the coordinate systems used in radio astronomy and some basics of antenna theory.
