Abstract
The QUIJOTE (Q-U-I JOint Tenerife) CMB Experiment is operating at the Teide Observatory with the aim of characterizing the polarization of the CMB and other processes of Galactic and extragalactic emission in the frequency range of 10–40GHz and at large and medium angular scales. The QUIJOTE CMB experiment consists of two telescopes installed inside a single enclosure, and three instruments, the MFI (multi-frequency 10–30GHz), the TGI (26–36 GHz) and the FGI (37–47 GHz). The first QUIJOTE telescope and the MFI instrument have been in operation at the Observatory since November 2012. In this poster we present the TGI cryostat and optomechanics status, including their design, MAIT, and thermal clamp developments.
