Design and performance of ALMA band 5 receiver cartridge
Paper in proceedings, 2010

ALMA, Atacama Large Millimetre Array, covers the frequency band from 30 GHz to 960 GHz in ten separate frequency bands. We present here the design and performance of the ALMA Band 5 receiver cartridge that covers 163–211 GHz. The Band 5 receiver shows the state-of-the-art performance with the noise temperature below 65K (SSB) and sideband rejection above 12 dB over 80% of the RF band.
