This work will present the corrugated-horns, polarizers and ortho-mode transducers developed for the 49-element coherent polarimeter array working in [39, 48] GHz to be embarked in the Large Scale Polarization Explorer. The latter is an ASI-funded balloon experiment designed to measure the CMB B-modes on large angular scales. The presentation will focus on the analysis, design, manufacturing and measurements of these components.

Abstract

This work will present the corrugated-horns, polarizers and ortho-mode transducers developed for the 49-element coherent polarimeter array working in [39, 48] GHz to be embarked in the Large Scale Polarization Explorer. The latter is an ASI-funded balloon experiment designed to measure the CMB B-modes on large angular scales. The presentation will focus on the analysis, design, manufacturing and measurements of these components.
