The ORP partner infrastructure e-MERLIN invites proposals from the international astronomical community for observations to be made during cycle-14.
The Opticon RadioNet Pilot project offers a series of 12 trans-national access (TA) providing access to 8 of Europe’s largest and most powerful radio facilities ranging from sub-mm to metre wavelengths and including large single dishes as well as interferometer networks across Europe, East Asia, Russia and South Africa. At optical/IR wavelengths, ORP provides access to 14 telescopes from 0.4m to 10m diameter, with state-of-the art capabilities in wide-field imaging, imaging and multi-object spectroscopy, polarimetry, and high-resolution spectroscopy tailored for exoplanet detection and characterization. In addition, dedicated user support to two of the most complex interferometric facilities ALMA and VLTI.
