Synthetic aperture imaging in astronomy and aerospace: Introduction

Michelle J. Creech-Eakman, P. Scott Carney, David F. Buscher, Michael Shao

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Aperture synthesis methods allow the reconstruction of images with the angular resolutions exceeding that of extremely large monolithic apertures by using arrays of smaller apertures together in combination. In this issue we present several papers with techniques relevant to amplitude interferometry, laser radar, and intensity interferometry applications.
