IX. UNEXPECTED OR UNANTICIPATED OUTCOMES (IN ANY OF THE PREVIOUS ASPECTS)

In this section add any other results or situations that you detected regarding activities of the reported period.






Unanticipated new projects
1.- ALMA Band 5 pre-production and full production study.
The mm-wave laboratory is involved in the assembly, integration, and verification of 6 receivers for the Band 5 of ALMA (186-211 GHz), through a collaboration with an UE-FP6 program that includes ESO, GARD (Sweden) and RAL (UK). While our original participation focused on the training of Chilean engineers, the development of laboratory facilities allowed us to design and build the Beam Scanner Test source (BeaSTS) to measure the receiver beam pattern. A high precision waveguide probe was machined at home, the highest frequency emitter ever built in a Chilean laboratory. Presently we participate of a full production study, having constructed in 2011 the Mixer Block and OMT prototypes.
2.- Side-band separating mixer for ALMA Band 9
Center members are collaborating with the Netherlands Institute for Space Research (SRON) in the implementation of a new sideband-separating receiver for ALMA Band 9 (600-720 GHz). We participated in the design and successfully fabricated, until 2011, three units of the split block that contains the RF waveguide circuitry of the receiver. The waveguides have transversal dimensions with details reaching dimensions of around 20 to 50 microns, the highest precision achieved in a local laboratory. The resulting receiver has been tested at SRON, giving sideband rejection ratio and noise temperature compatible with ALMA specifications.
