Abstract : This program has as its goal the development of video and superheterodyne detection techniques which are appropriate for the millimeter and submillimeter range of the spectrum. A crystal detector cartridge has been constructed in which the whisker wire is formed into a loop so that the r.f. currents in the whisker wire are set up by coupling to the magnetic field of the incident wave. The loop detector is compatible with both the reflecting beam waveguide and conventional 4 mm waveguide. Construction details and preliminary test results are presented in this report. (Author)
