this paper, the latest achievements in development and applications of the
superconducting integrated receiver (SIR) are presented. SIR is developed at
the Kotel’nikov Institute of Radio engineering and Electronics of RAS and found
many practical applications during last years. For the moment, the frequency
range of receiver operation is 450 – 700 GHz, spectral resolution is about
0.1 MHz, and the best noise temperature is about 120 K, which equals
a few quantum limits. During recent several years the SIR was implemented in
different setups for laboratory high sensitive analysis of gas compounds, for
research of spectral properties of the superconducting oscillators based on
high-Tc crystals Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ
with very high resolution. SIR also demonstrated applicability for noise THz
spectroscopy of high resolution.
