Conference Proceedings Detail Page

published by the Princeton University
Describes an experiment for the temperature measurement of the Cosmic Microwave Background.  A radiometer is used to measure the intensity of the sky signal at 10 GHz.  The radiometer is calibrated to reduce systematic effects, and the signal from a cryogenically cooled reference load is periodically measured to catch changes in the gain of the amplifier circuit over time.
