dc.description.abstractThe usefulness of the phase-sweep technique in interferometers designed to record radio star signals is discussed. Interferometers of this type have been built for use at frequencies of 223 and 456 Mcs., and their electronic design is explained in some detail. The report also includes a discussion of the automatic data processing system which has been designed to operate in conjunction with the interferometers in the analysis of the amplitude scintillation of radio stars.en_US
