Relaxed concentrated MLE for robust calibration of radio interferometers

Abstract : In this paper, we investigate the calibration of radio interfer-ometers in which Jones matrices are considered to model the interaction between the incident electromagnetic field and the antennas of each station. Specifically, perturbation effects are introduced along the signal path, leading to the conversion of the plane wave into an electric voltage by the receptor. In order to design a robust estimator, the noise is assumed to follow a spherically invariant random process (SIRP). The derived algorithm is based on an iterative relaxed concentrated maximum likelihood estimator (MLE), for which closed-form expressions are obtained for most of the unknown parameters.
