On-sky calibration of a SKA1-low station in the presence of mutual coupling

26 May 2020 Borg Josef Magro Alessio Adami Kristian Zarb Acedo Eloy de lera Sutinjo Adrian Ung Daniel

This paper deals with the calibration of the analogue chains of a Square Kilometre Array (SKA) phased aperture array station, using embedded element patterns (one per antenna in the array, thus accounting for the full effects of mutual coupling) or average element patterns to generate model visibilities. The array is composed of 256 log-periodic dipole array antennas... (read more)
