Abstract

We describe the design, fabrication, integration, and characterization of a prototype superconducting filter bank with transition edge sensor readout designed to explore millimeter-wave detection at frequencies in the range of 40–65GHz. Results indicate highly uniform filter channel placement in frequency and high overall detection efficiency. The route to a full atmospheric sounding instrument in this frequency range is discussed.
