Radio Cosmology Research Laboratory

The Radio Laboratory for Radio Astronomy is located inside the Electronics Laboratory at the Physics Department, Science Faculty, University of Malaya. The lab was founded by Dr Zamri Zainal Abidin and Prof Dr Zainol Abidin Ibrahim in 2005 and is the first and, currently, the only radio astronomical laboratory facility in Malaysia. The 'Radio Lab', as it was called then, is now officially a research group in University of Malaya under the Advanced Fundamental Research (AFR) Cluster under the name Radio Cosmology Research Laboratory. The Radio Lab provides facilities such as a Faraday-caged lab, a 3-meter radio spectrometer, a 2.3-meter research grade Hydrogen spectral line radio telescope system and a radio frequency interference (RFI) monitoring system, which include 2-GHz and 3-GHz spectrum analyzers. We also have a basic radio solar monitoring system. A 'Classroom Radio Telescope' is also an instrument that we recently set up for school-level educational purposes.
