CMBS4 Band Sensitivity Comparison
Current version = 1.0
v1.0 published on 2017-01-23 by C. Hill
This page is dedicated to comparing the relative sensitivities of the various proposed band configurations for CMB-S4.
Below are input assumptions that are common to all calculations.
|Band Shape||Top Hat|
|Telescope Temp [K]||15.0||Similar to PB2|
|Bath Temp [K]||0.100, 0.250||Considering both a Dil fridge or ADR, and a He3 fridge|
|Transition Temp [K]||0.171, 0.427||1.71*Tbath|
|Saturation Power||2.5*Popt||Safety factor for ETF stability|
|Number of detectors||3794*(fcent/150 GHz)2||PB2 FOV|
To simulate the sky temperature, we use the [[AM code]] using the [[example configuration files]] for the Chajnantor plateau and the South Pole.
