Advanced Receiver Development
The Group for Advanced Receiver Development (GARD) is an instrumentation group that develops instruments for measurements in Radio Astronomy and Environment Science. These contribute to advancing the boundaries additional for our knowledge about universes in time and rooms but also that better to understand our home - the Earth. In an expanding universe, older items are farther away and therefore more difficult to observe for astronomers, concurrent as environment researchers is after very weak signals from low concentration's molecules in the land's atmosphere.
In order to detect such weak signals we use the lastest technology and it is possible through carrying out active research. Therefore, we put down a lot time and effort in order to develop own technology, as unique process equipment in Chalmers's nanofabrications laboratory for Nb superconductivity technology. We participated actively in the building of the satellite ODIN with responsibilities for it main instrumentation.
The level on our work permits us to attend all more important international instrumentation projects.
