Open Access Development of Terahertz Intensity Interferometry for Very High Angular Resolution Observations

This article is Open Access under the terms of the Creative Commons CC BY licence.

Intensity interferometers are extremely important to the field of astronomy as they enable astronomers to determine the apparent angular diameter of a radio source or star. Ultimately, they help scientists observe the Universe in significantly improved ways, facilitating relatively detailed observations of stars, galaxies and black holes. Now a team of researchers led by Dr Hiroshi Matsuo and based at the Advanced Technology Center of National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, is investigating a means of developing terahertz (THz) intensity interferometry which will build upon advanced technology and transform our understanding of astrophysical objects.
