Synergy with radio astronomy
Long before sub-millimeter interferometry started, aperture synthesis was developed at longer radio wavelengths. Allegro has close connections to radio astronomy in the Netherlands, including ASTRON and JIVE, and is constantly seeking to port â€˜radioâ€™ practices and algorithms to the sub-millimeter. A particular focus is the development of millimeter-VLBI with ALMA.
