Integrated Setup for THz Receiver Characterization
Paper in proceedings, 2010

A highly versatile measurement setup has been built that allows complete characterization of the ALMA Band 5 cartridge. The measurement setup includes all necessary hardware and largely achieves automatic measurements for the system noise and sideband rejection with in-built optimization procedures. The measurement setup additionally comprises measurements of the receiver saturation, phase and amplitude stability, as well as optical beam characterization.
