Up: Numerical values
Warning: Please do not quote these values in your papers. You should refer
to the publications which fully describe the receivers.
- The receiver temperature is the sum of
We end up with
K below 260 GHz and K above
- The mixer temperature: Typically 50 K below 260 GHz and 70 K above;
- The mirror losses: Typically 10 K;
- The dichroic losses: Typically 15 K. Nota Bene: Dichroics enable dual
frequency observation by frequency separation of the sky signal.
