Gravity Group Lunch Seminar, Corwin Shiu | Princeton "A design of a wideband 30/40 GHz diplexed camera suitable for BICEP Array"

Abstract: Accurate understanding of astrophysical foregrounds is crucial in recovering the underlying CMB signal. In this talk I will discuss the design and performance of a camera that will be powerful at characterizing synchrotron emissions. The camera is comprised of slotted bowtie antenna elements coherently summed in a phased array. In line filters divide the signal into two bands centered at 30 and 40 GHz. I will also briefly discuss the deployment plan for BICEP Array in the upcoming 2019 season, and the projected sensitivity of this focal-plane unit (FPU) in BICEP Array.
