  1. 1. NbN and NbTiN Hot Electron Bolometer THz Mixers

    Author : Pourya Khosropanah; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : receiver noise; hot electron bolometer; superconducting detector; spiral antenna; NbTiN; submillimeter mixer; THz mixer; HEB; FTS; NbN; quasioptical receiver; heterodyne receiver; double slot antenna; twin slot antenna; Fourier Transform Spectrometer;

    Abstract : The thesis reports the development of Hot Electron Bolometer (HEB) mixers for radio astronomy heterodyne receivers in THz frequency range. Part of this work is the fabrication of HEB devices, which are based on NbN or NbTiN superconducting thin films (≤5 nm). They are integrated with wideband spiral or double-slot planar antennas.
