Murchison Widefield Array
(low frequency radio telescope)
The Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) is a radio telescope
operating at 80-300MHz, aimed at detecting the
hydrogen 21cm line redshifted from the
epoch of reionization (much like LOFAR).
It was completed in 2012
in Western Australia and has a collecting area
of 512 square meters in 128 antennas (in the first
It is at the
Murchison Radio Astronomy Observatory (MRO)
north of Perth.
