Approaching Micro-Arcsecond Resolution with VSOP-2: Astrophysics and Technologies
ASP Conference Series, Vol. 402
First and Last Page
We have compiled a complete set of VSOP observations of 3C279, consisting of eight 5 GHz, and six 1.6 GHz, VSOP observations, all of which include the VLBA in the ground array. We are using the data-set to determine brightness temperature limits from model-fits to the visibilities, the transverse structure of the jet over its first 20 milliarcseconds, and parsec-scale spectral index maps.
