BaR-SPOrt is a project to measure the linearly polarised emission of 20degtimes20deg sky patches from a stratospheric balloon, at 32 GHz and 90 GHz. It consists of correlation polarimeters for direct measurements of the Q and U Stokes parameters, coupled to optics providing a beam of 0.5deg (32 GHz) and 0.2deg (90 GHz). The instrument design is described. Particular emphasis is put on the hardware solutions adopted to reduce the systematic effects in high sensitivity polarisation measurements

Abstract

BaR-SPOrt is a project to measure the linearly polarised emission of 20degtimes20deg sky patches from a stratospheric balloon, at 32 GHz and 90 GHz. It consists of correlation polarimeters for direct measurements of the Q and U Stokes parameters, coupled to optics providing a beam of 0.5deg (32 GHz) and 0.2deg (90 GHz). The instrument design is described. Particular emphasis is put on the hardware solutions adopted to reduce the systematic effects in high sensitivity polarisation measurements
