Paper Abstract

We describe an experimental sub-millimetre heterodyne receiver covering approximately 300-500GHz. This wide frequency coverage is obtained using two corcinotron local oscillators incorporated into the receiver, with two room temperature, Schottky-barrier diode corner-cube mixers. This physically compact receiver includes a PLL system and an on-board computer for controlling and supervising all components as well as communicating with a host computer.
