Paper Abstract

A low-noise 625-650 GHz receiver has been developed for trace gas measurements in the stratosphere. The instrument isdesigned for single-sideband operation allowing the detection of a variety of weak emission lines in both receiver sidebands.During several measurement campaigns over northern Europe, in the winters 1991/92 and 1992/93, the radiometer wasoperated on board the research aircraft FALCON. We report on receiver performance and present recent results of the flightexperiments.
