RM-synthesis parameters derived via Brentjens & de Bruyn (2005).

C-band L-band
Bandwidth (GHz) 2 0.5
νmin to νmax (GHz) 5 to 7 1.2 to 1.75 [gap]
Δλ2 = (m2) 0.00184 0.0336
δϕ = (rad m−2) 1882 103

λmin (m) 0.042 0.17
maxscale = (rad m−2) 1781 109

spw-width δf (MHz) 125 16
δλ2 (m2) 0.0001735 0.001447
RMmax = (rad m−2) 9983 1197

Notes. νmin, νmax: minimum and maximum CHANG-ES frequencies; Δλ2: width of the λ2 distribution; and : boundary wavelengths of the band; δϕ (rad m−2): full width at half maximum (FWHM) of the resolution (RMSF) in Faraday depth (Φ) space. λmin: shortest wavelength; maxscale (rad m−2): largest scale in Φ space to which the observation is sensitive. δλ2: spw-width squared; RMmax (rad m−2): maximum observable RM (resp. Φ).
