Paper Abstract

Receiver B3 is a common-user facility instrument for the JCMT and was commissioned in December 1996. It includes the following features: (1) Frequency coverage of 315 to 372 GHz with optimum performance at 345 GHz. (2) Two spatially- coincident channels with orthogonal linear polarizations. (3) An IF of 4 GHz with an instantaneous bandwidth of 1.7 GHz in each channel. (4) Single side-band capability with the rejected side-band terminated on a cold load. (5) High- efficiency, frequency-independent optics. (6) Independent adjustment of the local oscillator power to the two mixers. (7) Internal ambient and cold loads for accurate receiver calibration. (8) Fully automated operation.
