Visit to LOFAR Potsdam

Members of the I-LOFAR consortium visited the international LOFAR station in Potsdam in March 2012.

We took lots of photos and notes during the site visit, which we have included in the following summary document.

During the visit, we discussed practical issues associated with leveling the ground, drainage, fibre costs, site installation time-scales, and annual running costs. We also learned about single station observing modes.

Thanks to Prof. Gottfried Mann, Dr. Christian Volcks and Dr. Frank Breitling of the Institute of Astrophysics, Potsdam for arranging the visit and showing us round.
