Paper Abstract

The corner cube mdxer is now in use worldwide over a wide range of submillimetre wavelengths. Its optical coupling efficiency is dependent upon many parameters so that experimental measurement of its effective tuning range is difficult. We describe a three-dimensional model which calculates the antenna efficiency for input Gaussian beams. This model is used to predict the optical performance of the corner cube antenna and to simulate its performance in various radimetric configurations so that design criteria can be evaluated.
