The first observation at RATAN-600
was made with North sector on July
At the wavelength 3,9 Óm radiation
from the radio source PKS 0521-36 was received. The radiometer
was build by team of Pulkovo engineers headed by
D.V. Korol'kov, who was appointed
to be Deputy Chief Designer of RATAN-600 in electronic equipment ( Chief
Designer was N. L. Kaydanovsky at that time ).
The team comprised by G.M. Timofeeva, A.B. Berlin, V.Ya. Gol'nev,
Yu.N. Konovalov and others, who had created a number of unique
detectors for the Big Pulkovo Radio Telescope by that time.
In 2014 RáôáN-600 celebrated
its 40 anniversary since the first observation was conducted. The Continuum
Radiometers Laboratory has developed and constructed a few generations
of radiometric devices, however, many significant principles and lines
of research, founded by D.V.Korol'kov, are followed even now.
