Paper Abstract

The work of this research is the design, analysis and verification of the optical performance of a 4mmreceiver channel for the 20 m telescope at Onsala Space Observatory, Onsala, Sweden. The 4 mm (75 GHz) receiver is a newly proposed channel designed to be installed parallel to the existing 3 mm (100 GHz) channel targeting new science at that longer wavelength. Gaussian beam mode analysis is used to produce the fundamental optical design of the system. The design is then analysed more accurately with the physical optics approximation. We report on the comparison of simulation and measurement and verification of the system design.
