By Boon Kok Tan

The thesis describes the advance of receiver applied sciences for sub-millimetre astronomy tools, targeting excessive functionality coherent cryogenic detectors working on the subject of the superconductor hole frequency. The mixer chip which includes the SIS units, fed through a unilateral finline and matching planar circuits used to be fabricated on 15 micron silicon substrate utilizing the lately constructed Silicon-On-Insulator (SOI) know-how. This provided broadband IF and RF functionality, with absolutely built-in on-chip planar circuits leading to an simply reproducible mixer chip and an easy mixer block. an incredible final result of this layout is that it may be prolonged to the supra-THz sector and making the fabrication of multi-pixel heterodyne arrays possible. The extension of the operation of significant telescopes reminiscent of ALMA, APEX and the GLT from unmarried pixel to giant layout arrays is the topic of intensive study at the moment time because it will enable speedy mapping mixed with excessive solution of the submillimetre sky. The expertise defined during this thesis makes a tremendous contribution to this effort.
