High-Quality Images Based on the Steer Algorithm Decovolution from the Correlation Data Observed with Nobeyama Radioheliograph

  • Shinzo Enome


After the Makuhari meeting of IAU Colloquium 153 remarkable developments have been made at Nobeyama on high-quality imaging, which applies the Steer algorithm for deconvolution. Considering the importance of this achievement, it is briefly introduced in this report with farther application to a high-resolution narrow field mapping. Some preliminary results are presented for both cases as well as dual-frequency images at 17 and 34 GHz.
