LOFAR started as a new and innovative effort to force a breakthrough in
sensitivity for astronomical observations at radio-frequencies below
The LOw Frequency ARray is a multi-purpose sensor array. Its main
application is astronomy at low frequencies (10-250 MHz) but also has geophysical and agricultural applications. Its heart is currently being assembled
in the Northeast of the Netherlands and spreads over the whole country
and over whole Europe.
