Kathryn Plant (Caltech): Searching for Fast Radio Burst Emission at 26-34 GHz

Seminar: RAL Seminars | December 10 | 3:10-4 p.m. | 501B Campbell Hall

 Kathryn Plant, Caltech

 Radio Astronomy Lab

I will present a project to monitor the repeating Fast Radio Burst (FRB121102) at 24-36GHz with 10.4 meter radio telescopes at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory. At the time of submitting this abstract, a detection in this band would be the highest frequency detection of any FRB so far. Daily observations with a dedicated instrument will enable a comparison of repeat rates at different...   More >
