Paper Abstract

Typical of new applications of the rapidly developing submillimeter wave (SMMW) technology is the detection and sounding of upper atmospheric constituents. Before discussing this application it is appropriate to review coherent receiver concepts as they pass from the microwaves and mm-waves through the infrared. This is necessary because SMMAI is being approached from both ends of the spectrum conceptually and with experimental apparatus.
