ALMA Memo #276

ALMA Sensitivity, Supra-THz Windows and 20 km baselines

B. Butler[1], A. Wootten[2]

October 25, 1999

Keywords: grating, infrared filter, analysis

This memo presents a calculation of the sensitivity of the ALMA array, given new thinking on number of antennas, resolutions of different configurations, and other considerations. Much of it is drawn from a similar calculation in Butler et al. (1999), which was patterned after Brown (1998). Numbers for the Supra-THz windows and baselines longer than 10 km are also presented and discussed.
