Abstract:
We have built and tested a prototype SIS receiver operating at 100 GHz to test the feasibility of sideband separation through quadrature mixing at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths. We achieved over 40 dB of separation with no degradation of the mixer noise temperature due to the sideband separation. Both the sky signal and atmospheric noise are separated, greatly reducing the system temperature for millimeter and submillimeter observations in which spectral lines are present in only one sideband.
