Prototype ALMA Band 5 Cartridge:Design and Performance
Paper in proceedings, 2009

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), an international astronomy facility, is a partnership of East Asia, Europe and North America in cooperation with the Republic of Chile and aims to build an interferometer radio telescope consisting of more than 60 antennas. The instrument is under construction at the Llano de Chajnantor, about 50 km east of San Pedro de Atacama, Chile. This work presents a part of ALMA frontend, the development, design and performance of one of the frequency channels of the ALMA receiver, the Band 5 prototype cartridge for 163 – 211 GHz frequency band.
