Spectral Polarimetric Observations of the Sun by the VIRAC RT-32 Radio Telescope: First Results

D. Bezrukov
Published Online: 2017-02-18 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/astro-2017-0142


The article describes microwave observations of the Sun with the radio telescope RT-32 of the Ventspils International Radio Astronomy Center. The observations were performed using a multichannel spectral polarimeter for the 6.3–9.4 GHz frequency range. A set of 2D microwave emission maps of the Sun for the Stokes I and V parameters has been obtained and analyzed.

Keywords: Sun: radio emission; instrumentation: polarimeters
