Paper Abstract

We have extended techniques used in the development of low noise quasiparticle mixers for the 3mm and 2mm wavelength ranges to include the 1.3mm range. A double sideband receiver noise temperature of below 200K has been measured using a waveguide mounted quas-particle mixer at 223 GHz. Photon assisted quasiparticle tunneling steps have been observed at 462 GHz suggesting that the type of junction used in our quasiparticle mixers may be used for low noise mixing up to this frequency.
