Fast Radio Bursts (FRB) is one of the most intriguing astrophysical phenomena discovered less than 15 years ago. They are of extragalactic origin, with extreme energies (of the order of 10^39 ergs) emitted over very short time intervals of a few milliseconds. Although FRBs were discovered and initially observed at frequencies around 1.4 GHz, the past two years have witnessed some FRBs detected down to ~ 100 MHz frequencies. This project aims to detect a large population of FRBs at frequencies well below 350 MHz.
This project will be supervised by researchers from the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy (CIRA), in collaboration with the PAWSEY Supercomputing Centre staff, who will contribute through their expertise and guidance for developing optimal software using GPUs and High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources.
