We develop new telescopes and technologies in order to make new discoveries from the cosmos. In order to better understand Dark Energy, Fast Radio Bursts, and Pulsars, we develop large analog and digital systems which are both very sensitive and can scale to be used for new possibilities discovered. New telescopes dedicated to surveying large swaths of the sky require new designs and massive new computing systems. These new telescopes are being built in Green Bank WV, Canada, and South Africa.
Researchers in our Center were also on the CHIME Fast Radio Burst team which was recently awarded the 2022 Lancelot M. Berkeley − New York Community Trust Prize for Meritorious Work in Astronomy.
Researchers in this area include:
