General purpose of this lecture is to present on Radio Astronomy and Interferometry: Basic Radio/mm Astronomy. We can detect many forms of electromagnetic radiation that together comprise the electromagnetic spectrum. The long wavelength, low frequency hence low energy form is called radio waves. Going up in frequency and energy the electromagnetic spectrum comprises radio and microwaves, infrared waves, visible light, ultraviolet rays, X-rays and γ – or gamma rays.
