Dr Jimi Green
Square Kilometre Array Organisation
Astrophysical masers are the radio equivalent of lasers, highly beamed radiation naturally occurring in space, and found towards a multitude of objects from newly forming stars to stars at the ends of their lives, in the tails of comets, and towards black holes at the centre of galaxies. I will talk about current research in masers and what radio observations of them can be used for, both today and in the era of the world’s largest radio telescope, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). The SKA is an international effort, with headquarters at Jodrell Bank, and supported by 11 member countries, with a design effort involving more than 500 experts from around 100 organisations across 20 countries. The SKA telescope will use hundreds of thousands of interconnected radio telescopes spread across Africa and Australia to revolutionise our understanding of the Universe.
