- NCRA has set up a unique facility for radio astronomical research using the metrewavelengths range of the radio spectrum, known as the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT), it is located at a site about 80 km north of Pune. GMRT consists of 30 fully steerable gigantic parabolic dishes of 45m diameter each spread over distances of upto 25 km. GMRT is one of the most challenging experimental programmes in basic sciences undertaken by Indian scientists and engineers.
- The metre wavelength part of the radio spectrum has been particularly chosen for study with GMRT because man-made radio interference is considerably lower in this part of the spectrum in India. Although there are many outstanding astrophysics problems which are best studied at metre wavelengths, there has, so far, been no large facility anywhere in the world to exploit this part of the spectrum for astrophysical research.
- The Site for GMRT, about 10 km east of Narayangaon town on the Pune-Nasik highway, was selected after an extensive search in many parts of India, considering several important criteria such as low man-made radio noise, availability of good communication, vicinity of industrial, educational and other infrastructure and,a geographical latitude sufficiently north of the geomagnetic equator in order to have a reasonably quiet ionosphere and yet be able to observe a good part of the southern sky as well.
- The number and configuration of the dishes was optimized to meet the principal astrophysical objectives which require sensitivity at high angular resolution as well as ability to image radio emission from diffuse extended regions. Fourteen of the thirty dishes are located more or less randomly in a compact Central Array in a region of about 1 sq km. The remaining sixteen dishes are spread out along the 3 arms of an approximately `Y’-Shaped configuration over a much larger region, with the longest interferometric baseline of about 25 km.
- The multiplication or correlation of radio signals from all the 435 possible pairs of antennas or interferometers over several hours will thus enable radio images of celestial objects to be synthesized with a resolution equivalent to that obtainable with a single gigantic dish 25 kilometre in diameter! The array will operate in six frequency bands centred around 50, 153, 233, 325, 610 and 1420 MHz. All these feeds provide dual polarization outputs. In some configurations, dual-frequency observations are also possible.
- GMRT should also be an ideal instrument for the study of Pulsars (rapidly rotating neutron stars with extremely high densities of about 200 million tons per cubic cm). Its large collecting area can lead to a 3 to 4-fold increase in the number of Pulsars known in our Galaxy. A particularly important programme in Pulsar research will be the search for extremely rapidly rotating pulsars with periods in the range of only milli-seconds and for pulsars in binary systems. Because of the strong gravitational fields associated with them, such systems form excellent laboratories for testing gravitational theories such as Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity. Accurate timing measurements to detect extremely minute changes in the pulse arrival times from a group of pulsars could also lead to the detection of a weak background of gravitational radiation believed to have been generated by asymmetries in the very early Universe when it was less than a billionth of a billionth of a billionth of a second old!
