In this paper, we report about the development, fabrication, and characterization of a balanced waveguide hot electron bolometer (HEB) receiver for the Atacama Pathfinder EXperiment telescope covering the frequency band of 1.25-1.39 THz. The receiver uses a quadrature balanced scheme and two HEB mixers, fabricated from 4- to 5-nm-thick NbN film deposited on(More)
We present an integrated waveguide based packaging solution compatible with different THz component technologies, both for room temperature and cryogenic operations, employing space-qualified wire-bonding for electrical contacts. The proposed waveguide packaging relies on the combination of all-metal micro-machined THz waveguide and active component chip(More)
APEX, the Atacama PAthflnder Experiment (APEX) Telescope, is a partnership between Max Planck Institut fur Radioastronomie (in collaboration with Astronomisches Institut Ruhr Universitat Bochum (AIRUB)), Onsala Space Observatory and the European Southern Observatory. The telescope antenna, supplied by VERTEX Antennentechnik, is a 12 m antenna with a 17 mum(More)
We report on electrical properties and microstructure of epitaxial thin NbN films grown on 3C-SiC/Si substrates by means of reactive magnetron sputtering. A complete epitaxial growth at the NbN/3C-SiC interface has been confirmed by means of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) along with x-ray diffractometry (XRD). Resistivity(More)
Results are reported from the comparative investigations of kidney concentration function by urine specific gravity and its osmolatity of 58 patients with arterial hypertension. Significant differences were found in more of the half of the patients. On the base of certain theoretical prerequisites and possibilities of technical errors was concluded that the(More)
