Further eVLBI Progress

Published on 21 December 2004

Jodrell Bank's new 2.5 Gb/s connection was used in an eVLBI test for the first time yesterday (20th Dec 2004). Real-time fringes to Jodrell were detected from Westerbork, at 128Mb/s, and from Torun at 256Mb/s. These are the highest real-time eVLBI data rates achieved in Europe so far, quadrupling the previous record. This fringe plot shows individual integrations, for one sub-band, on the Jodrell Bank-Torun baseline.
