Abstract

The ClOVER instrument (described elsewhere in this volume) is being built to measure the B-mode polarisation of the Cosmic Microwave Background. Each of the 256 pixels is made up a pseudo-correlation receiver that can be realised using either waveguide or microstrip technology. In this work we present a design study for a possible waveguide-based solution. Each of the individual components has been optimised using electromagnetic finite-element modelling software (HFSS).
