Title: Terahertz radiometer design for traceable noise-temperature measurements
Published: July 14, 2006
Abstract: We report on design of a radiometer for traceable noise-temperature measurements at terahertz frequencies, including noise measurements on cryogenic IF components, development and test of quasi-optical adapter technology, development of black body standards, and the overall system design.
