Terahertz radiometer design for traceable noise-temperature measurements



Eyal Gerecht, Dazhen Gu, James P. Randa, Dave K. Walker, Robert L. Billinger


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.
