French researchers push forward radio image quality in view of the SKA telescope


Goa, India, Thursday, November 10th.

New image processing techniques have been presented today at the SKA (Square Kilometre Array) scientific conference in Goa, in India. French teams (including UnivEarthS Project F3 “The Transient catastrophic Universe”) have released to the astronomy community, promising results about the development efforts taking place in France in the design of new imaging techniques, some of them can lead to a large number of applications.

French team of Observatoire de Paris, Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur, the AIM laboratory (hosting project F3), ENS Cachan and University Paris X are actively working on cutting-edge algorithms for the calibration and the deconvolution of astronomical images in radio.
