The HIFI Focal Plane Beam Characterization and Alignment Status

Authors:
Willem Jellema, Marinus Jochemsen, Tully Peacocke, Lenze Meinsma, Paul Lowes, Stafford Withington, Wolfgang Wild
Abstract:
In this paper we present the results of the characterization program of the beams in the focal plane of the HIFI flight model. We discuss the beam properties, quality of alignment, instrument footprint, performance impact and compliance and compare the results to predictions based on lower-level characterization results and simulations. We finally conclude by presenting the expected properties at the sky by forward propagation through a telescope model.
