Abstract-Terahertz Heterodyne Array Receivers for Astronomy
We review the development of multi-pixel heterodyne receivers for astronomical research in the submillimeter and terahertz spectral domains. We shortly address the historical development, highlighting a few pioneering instruments. A discussion of the design concepts is followed by a presentation of the technologies employed in the various receiver subsystems and of the approaches taken to optimize these for current and future instruments.
