There has been long-term cooperation
on radio astronomy between China
Max-Planck-Institute for RadioAstronomy
has a very close cooperation with National Astronomical Observations of
Using the 25meter telescope at Urumqi Observatory, we
are doing a 6cm polarization survey of the Galactic Plane survey. This
after the first bilateral conference on radio astronomy in Xi’an
2002. The instrument of 6cm receiver system has been installed last
September last year, a large amount of data are accumulated, most of
are unique over the world. Now, it is good time for scientists from
countries to meet together, to discuss what new sciences can be done.
workshop provides all participants to visit Urumqi
Astronomical Observatory, and express their suggestions and new ideas
the survey data, and maybe join the cooperation team, or maybe find
topics to cooperate. In fact, the advanced 6cm system can also be used
other purpose, such as measurements of IntraDay
Variable sources, mapping supernova remnants, detecting new maser
observations of foreground of cosmic microwave backgrounds. This
organized to make more connections between the astronomers from both
and to promote more cooperation.
China side is also considering to build a 100meter telescope
near Kashi, to enhance the capability of radio
astronomy in China
and extend the baseline for the interfermeter.
Participates may visit the potential site for this future observatory,
their suggestions to the construction and science cases.
Main Topics of this workshop:
