The network of telescopes provides a world-leading facility for high resolution astronomical imaging at centimetre wavelengths.

The e-MERLIN/VLBI National Facility is operated by the University of Manchester on behalf of the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) for use by the worldwide astronomy community. e-MERLIN is used by hundreds of scientists in the UK and around the world to investigate a wide range of astrophysical phenomena, from planet formation and stellar physics through to extragalactic star-formation, jet astrophysics, gravitational lens studies and resolved imaging of high redshift galaxies.
