Performance of the HIFI Flight Mixers

Authors:
Gert de Lange, Jean-Michel Krieg, Netty Honingh, Alexandre Karpov, Sergey Cherednichenko
Abstract:
We summarize the technology and final results of the superconducting heterodyne SIS and HEB mixers that are developed for the HIFI instrument. Within HIFI 7 frequency bands cover the frequency range from 480 GHz to 1910 GHz. We describe the different device technologies and optical coupling schemes that are used to cover the frequency bands. The efforts of the different mixer teams that participate in HIFI have contributed to an instrument that will have unprecedented sensitivity and frequency coverage.
