Abstract

The Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) will consist of two, 8.417 m, spin-cast, optical quality primary mirrors on a common azimuth-elevation mount. The center-to-center distance between the primaries is 14.417 m. The LBT is being constructed on a site known to have relatively low atmospheric opacity at submillimeter wavelengths. In this paper we describe a unique 350 μm heterodyne receiver system designed for use on the LBT. The optical quality of the primaries and their size will give the LBT a light gathering power more than twice that of existing submillimeter-wave telescopes.
