Paper Abstract

The telescope effective focal length places major constraints upon the ability to design and build low loss quasi-optical components in the millimeter and submillimeter wavelength range. In this paper we discuss the principle problems involved in the design of such systems and report measurements of various quasi-optical components at 230 GHz and 460 GHz.
