Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array(ALMA) Band 1 receiver covers the 35-50 GHz frequency band. Development of prototype receivers, including the key components and subsystems has been completed and two sets of prototype receivers were fully tested. We will provide an overview of the ALMA Band 1 science goals, and its requirements and design for use on the ALMA. The receiver development status will also be discussed and the infrastructure, integration, evaluation of fully-Assembled band 1 receiver system will be covered. Finally, a discussion of the technical and management challenges encountered will be presented.
