  1. 1. Mm-wave Radio Astronomy Instrumentation for the Onsala Space Observatory and SEST

    Författare :Nicholas D. Whyborn; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mm-wave receiver; phase retrieval holography; focal plane imaging array; radio astronomy instrumentation; SIS mixer;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis presents work done in developing instrumentation for mm- and submm-wave radio astronomy. The work described is in several fields. The greater part of the thesis is concerned with sensitive heterodyne receivers and in particular the cryogenically cooled mixers. In paper A the SEST telescope and its observing system are described. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Design, Characterization, and Calibration of Low-Noise Terahertz Receivers

    Författare :Olle Nyström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :receiver characterization; instrumentation; antenna design; Radio astronomy; calibration; optics;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is focused on the field of instrumentation for radio-astronomy and atmospheric science, and specifically deals with problems such as optical design and its verification, horn antennas and receiver optics’ components, different aspects of measurement systems in order to characterize low-noise THz receivers, and its calibration techniques.Ultra low-noise Terahertz receivers, used in radio-astronomy, are typically coupled to the telescope system through relay optics that provides guiding of the signal to the receiver frontend with minimal loss.

  4. 4. Development of a Sideband Separating SIS Mixer Technology for MM-Wavelengths

    Författare :Vessen Vassilev; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mm-wave receiver; SIS mixer; radio astronomy instrumentation; waveguide to microstrip transition; sideband separation receiver;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents work done in developing instrumentation for mm-wave radio astronomy. The main subject of the thesis is a sideband separating (2SB) receiver for 85-115 GHz based on a quadrature scheme with two identical SIS mixer junctions pumped by a LO applied with 90° phase difference.
