e-Merlin: Scientific Results and Facility Development
Early results from e-MERLIN Legacy and PATT projects will be presented, along with an update on the status and future development of the facility following confirmation of ongoing financial support from STFC and the University of Manchester. The results to date, early in the operation, includes science that can only be done with eMERLIN and science where eMERLIN makes a unique contribution to projects enabled by facilities at other wavebands. Proposed and ongoing developments include new receivers and increases in the bandwidth, sensitivities and frequency range of the instrument, along with extensions to the network and greater integration with the European VLBI Network.
