Abstract
Far-infrared and submillimeter-wave astronomy are relatively new branches of astronomical research. This is due to the poor transmission of the terrestrial atmosphere in this spectral range. A restricted number of narrow spectral windows permit the observation of astronomical objects directly from the ground. Reliable observations have therefore to be performed from satellites [1], stratospheric-balloon gondolas [2,3] or aircraft [4].
