- SDSS-III observations of radio galaxies in the ELAIS-N1 field on 17th Mar 2016 11:00:am We present the radio population of the ELAIS-N1 field drawn from the combined results of five radio surveys and redshifts from spectroscopic follow-up using the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS).
- FILM: Fourier Inspection of Lensing Modes on 12th Jan 2016 2:00:pm In this talk I will cover the potential of radio surveys, such as SUPERclass (currently being undertaken by e-MERLIN) and similar future efforts by the SKA, as cosmological probes of weak lensing. I will highlight some of the advantages that low frequency observations can offer to their optical counterparts, and review the many challenges still...
- FILM: Fourier Inspection of Lensing Modes on 6th Jul 2015 9:20:am Most weak lensing surveys to date have been conducted at optical wavelengths. These surveys require high resolution, wide field data in order to extract adequate shape measurements for the purpose of constructing shear maps and statistics. Great progress has been made with shear estimators; however, subtle systematic effects are still a concern for current and...
- Weak Lensing Measurements at Radio Wavelengths: A NEW METHOD FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF RADIO TELESCOPES. on 22nd Jun 2015 12:35:am Extracting shape measurements from optical images for the purpose of constructing shear maps requires high resolution, wide field data. This has been a major obstacle in the field of optical weak leasing throughout its history. Due to the intrinsic difficulties associated with the imaging of radio data this problem is much more pronounced. We present...
- Weak Lensing in the Fourier Domain: A Method for Measuring Cosmic Shear in Radio Visibilities. on 7th Oct 2014 10:00:am
- Detecting the signal of shear by weak lensing using radio visibilities. on 11th Sep 2014 11:40:am Wide-field radio observations such as those being generated by LOFAR and the ASKAP will provide the deepest and widest surveys of the universe so far. With rapidly advancing computing power and ever increasing understanding of the data, radio interferometers are posed to become the future of observational astronomy. One signal that we wish to detect...
- Royal Institution Maths Masterclass: Maths of the Universe on 27th Feb 2016 10:00:am Maths can be a powerful tool for describing and understanding many physical processes in the real world. In this lecture/ workshop we will present the maths used by cosmologists and astrophysics to understand the scale of the universe, what it is made of, and how everything in it works! Participants will have the opportunity to...
