Quasi-Optics at Sub-mm Wavelengths
Quasi-Optics at Sub-mm Wavelengths
Our research concerns the development, measurement and application of quasi-optical components and systems at Sub-mm Wavelengths for atmospheric and astrophysical research. Numerical simulations and measurements in amplitude and phase, in the near and far field, are used to optimize the transfer function of components and instruments up to the terahertz range. We are currently performing near field beam pattern measurements on a breadboard focal plane array for the Stratosphere Troposphere Climate Exchange Monitor and Radiometer (STEAMR) instrument, which is a component of the PREMIER candidate instrument for the upcoming ESA Earth Explorer Mission. The design and development of this breadboard was developed in house at IAP.
