The Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy has the pleasure to announce the Workshop

Phased Array Feeds for radio-astronomical observations 2019

The Workshop will take place at the Hotel Collegium Leoninum a beautiful conference venue directly in the city of Bonn / Germany.

The scope of the workshop is to exchange ideas and solutions among the developers of radio-astronomical instrumentation in the frequency range below 100GHz, specially under the aspect of phased array feed systems.

After single pixel systems and discrete array receivers have been developed to sensitivities close to the physical limits, phased array feed systems are now the next logical step to further increase the science output of the observing facilities. These receiving systems with up to several hundred receiving channels introduce new technological challenges in all areas.
