A new approach to RFI mitigation in radio interferometers

July 21

12:10PM, Room 230, NRAO, Edgemont Road


I will describe a new approach which identifies and excises RFI in interferometric data using the fringe-stop pattern introduced by the correlator. This post-correlation, offline scheme has been implemented for GMRT data. This concept is of general use and may be applied to excise RFI in data from any interferometer.
