Summary

This posting describes simulations for four different configurations with 12 optics tubes but different frequency coverage. The configurations range from a charicature with 4 bands to the configuration with 9 bands that has been studied most extensively.

The counting of frequency bands includes the high resolution low frequency band on the delensing LAT. For this band the parameters are taken from the SAT survey 05 described in the posting Survey_Performance_Expectations, which differs somewhat from the parameters for the large area survey described in the same posting.

The bandwidth is as before and has been omitted from the table.

500 simulations for each configuration with r=0 are available in the data_xx.yy folder at NERSC.

The configuration numbers are chosen to clearly distinguish them from the main data challenge simulations (01-04). The sensitivities are obtained from the sensitivities for configuration 05 "S4 Pole — 7 years with 12 tubes of Config 5" described in the posting Survey_Performance_Expectations using the numbers of detectors and resolutions given in this spreadsheet

Configuration 30

This configuration relies on monochromatic detectors labeled option 3 in the spreadsheet. It consists of 2 optics tubes with 30 GHz detectors, 8 optics tubes with 95 GHz detectors, and 2 optics tubes with 270 GHz detectors.

Configuration 31

This configuration relies on monochromatic detectors labeled option 3 in the spreadsheet at 30 and 270 GHz and dichroic detectors at 95/155 GHz referred to as option 5. It consists of 2 optics tubes with 30 GHz detectors, 8 optics tubes with 95/155 GHz detectors, and 2 optics tubes with 270 GHz detectors.

Configuration 32

This configuration relies on dichroic detectors labeled option 5 in the spreadsheet. It consists of 1 optics tube with 30/40 GHz detectors, 8 optics tubes with 95/155 GHz detectors, and 3 optics tubes with 220/270 GHz detectors. There is no reason not to increase the bandwidth slightly and make them 90/150 GHz detectors, but discussion about NET levels to use for these is still ongoing. With current numbers this would lead to a ~10% decrease in noise levels for 90/150 GHz
