AbstractThis paper reports on the world's first CMOS low noise amplifier (LNA) operating successfully on a radio telescope since October 15th, 2010. The radio telescope used in this work is the Synthesis Telescope operated by the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, NRC, and located near Penticton, BC, Canada. This paper describes the work that led to the installation of the LNA on the telescope and shows measurement results obtained with the telescope.
