Murchison Widefield Array

(MWA)
(low frequency radio telescope)

The Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) is a Radio Telescope operating at 80-300MHz, aimed at detecting the Hydrogen (H) 21cm Line Redshifted (z) from the Epoch of Reionization (EOR) (much like Low-Frequency Array (LOFAR)). It was completed in 2012 in Western Australia and has a collecting area of 512 square meters in 128 antennas (in the first phase, MWA-128). It is at the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO) north of Perth.
