Millimetre Wave and Terahertz Instrumentation
The Millimetre-Wave Technology Group has delivered cutting edge technology for frequencies ranging from 50 GHz to above 2 THz for more than twenty years.
The MMT Group was originally established to provide radiometry expertise for UK radio astronomy. It is part of the STFC's (link opens in a new window) Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) and is situated within the RAL Space Department.
Precision Development Facility
Over the years we have expanded our activities to include remote sensing of the atmosphere, thereby supporting atmospheric chemistry and climate change studies.
If you are interested in any of the components or instruments on the website and want more information then get in touch.
Examples of the Group's capabilities range from mixers and frequency multipliers, through photomixer sources and wire grid polarisers, to autonomous cryogenic radiometer systems. World class design, assembly and test skills are complemented by our Precision Development Facility and a dedicated semiconductor processing laboratory.
