Abstract
In this paper, we will introduce a dual-THz-band SIS (Superconductor-Insulator-Superconductor) heterodyne radiometer system developed for the atmospheric profiling synthetic observation system project (APSOS). This THz system is intended to have a durable and compact design to meet the challenging requirements of remote operation. The system as well as its major components such as antenna tipping, quasi-optics, cryogenics, SIS mixers and FFTS backend will be discussed thoroughly. Some scientific simulation focusing on the atmospheric profiling components at THz bands will also be investigated.
