Abstract

We have built a cryogenic test system for extensive characterization of detectors at millimeter wavelengths. This instrument allows the measurement of the detector optical responsivity, noise, spectral response, and time constant. The design of the system provides optical loading conditions typical of space, sub-orbital, or ground-based experiments. The design of this instrument is presented here, along with initial results.
