Abstract

We describe the design, simulation, fabrication, and performance of a 96-GHz ortho-mode transducer (OMT) to be used for the Polatron-a bolometric receiver with polarization capability. The OMT has low loss, good isolation, and moderately broad bandwidth, and its performance closely resembles simulation results.
