Paper Abstract

KASIMIR initiative is a development program started in early 1996 by the ESA in order to advance the mm-and sub-mm-wave sensor technology for satellite-based atmospheric observations. The initial goal of the project is to build integrated antenna/mixer frontends at 650 GHz which are qualifiable for the low Earth orbit environment. All of the frontends will make use of the so-called integrated quasi- vertical Schottky diodes developed at Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany.
