We present the current status of the QUIJOTE (Q-U-I JOint TEnerife) CMB Experiment, a new instrument which will start operations early 2009 at Teide Observatory, with the aim of characterizing the polarization of the CMB and other processes of galactic and extragalactic emission in the frequency range 10-30 GHz and at large angular scales. QUIJOTE will be a(More)
This paper presents preliminary polarization measurements and systematic-error characterization of the Thirty Gigahertz Instrument receiver developed for the QUIJOTE experiment. The instrument has been designed to measure the polarization of Cosmic Microwave Background radiation from the sky, obtaining the Q, U, and I Stokes parameters of the incoming(More)
The 26–36 GHz receiver for a radio astronomy radiometer, to characterize the polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background, is presented. This receiver is based on very low noise cryogenically cooled amplifiers in the front-end module, while in the back-end module a broadband amplification and direct detection chain is operated at room temperature.(More)
