1. Sensitivity improvement by adding more antennas
Below is a list of existing or planned radio telescopes, which at least in principle could become available for future 3mm-VLBI. The addition of large and sensitive millimeter-telescopes (preferably located at high altitudes) will help to further improve the sensitivity and imaging capabilities of the global mm-arrays.
Possible Participants in future 3mm-VLBI:
|Name||Location||Height||Diameter||Apert.Eff.||Surface||Gain||existing VLBI equipment|
(The given telescope parameters were collected from the literature and the web, and
may be subject to changes. Please send e-mail to T. Krichbaum for comments, which help
to improve this table.)
2. Sensitivity improvement by recording at higher bit rates
