Paper Abstract

The different types of coherent millimeter and submillimeter detectors are reviewed. Emphasis is placed on heterodyne detection using GaAs Schottky diodes as quasi-optical mixers. A sufficiently sensitive radiometer has been developed to make the first ground-based submillimeter astronomical experiment using a laser local oscillator. Results for a millimeter wave monolithic mixer and a solid state local oscillator are also discussed.
