More on impact ›
New astronomical and remote sensing instrumentation is paced by advances in fields like optics, photonics, and material or information technologies. These are accelerating in step with “Moore’s Law” much like the growth in digital computing. The astronomical instruments being conceived and built today have complexity and capability that we could hardly imagine a decade ago. The Frontiers Astronomical Instrumentation section offers a modern platform for the critical discussion of disparate disciplines and technologies as they apply to astronomical instrumentation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
· Machine learning applications in instrument control and signal detection
· Optical component innovation due to design, manufacturing, or materials advances
· General advances in signal extraction algorithms
· Advances in instrumentation control and system design
· Electromagnetic and non-electromagnetic detector advances
· Proposed and theoretical remote sensing instrument concepts for electromagnetic and non-electromagnetic signal detection
· Theoretical analyses of astronomical signal detection of general interest
Reports focused on specific astronomical results from operating instruments are more appropriate for other topical astronomy sections of Frontiers. Specific instrument performance reports may be more suitable for other journals. This new Frontiers initiative in Astronomical Instrumentation will stimulate the rapid dissemination and critical discussion of the ideas and technologies that will be part of the next generation of remote sensing astronomical instruments.
