Facilities: Telescopes

LOFAR

LOFAR (Low Frequency Array) is currently the largest radio telescope operating at the lowest frequencies that can be observed from Earth.

WSRT/Apertif

The Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT) is a powerful radio telescope that uses a technique called "aperture synthesis" to generate radio images of the sky.

SKA

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be the largest radio telescope every built. It is being constructed in two parts: the higher frequency array in the Karoo desert of South Africa and the lower frequency array in the western Australian desert.
