abstract

High angular resolution observations are essential to understand a variety of astrophysical phenomena. The resolution of millimeter wave interferometers is limited by large and rapid differential atmospheric delay fluctuations. At the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy (CARMA) we have employed a Paired Antenna Calibration System (C-PACS) for atmospheric phase compensation in the extended array configurations (up to 2 km baselines). We present a description of C-PACS and its application. We also present successful atmospheric delay corrections applied to science observations with dramatic improvements in sensitivity and angular resolution.
