Low noise amplifier design for radio telescope system

Kouhdaragh, Vahid (2009) Low noise amplifier design for radio telescope system. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Electrical Engineering.



The purpose of this project is to design a low noise amplifier (LNA) for a radio telescope. The LNA is an electronic amplifier used in communication systems to amplify extremely weak signals captured by antennae. This thesis describes the procedure of designing an LNA for 7 GHz frequency. Noise matching is an important technique which was considered in the design process. The designed LNA achieved a gain of 30 dB with 1 GHz bandwidth. The noise figure achieved was less than 2.9 dB. Return-losses were improved by 6 dB with a new proposed optimization method.
