Abstract

The Atacama Cosmology Telescope is a 6 m telescope designed to map the cosmic microwave background simultaneously at 145, 215, and 280  GHz with arcminute resolution. Each frequency will have a 32 by 32 element focal plane array of transition edge sensor bolometers. The telescope and the cold reimaging optics are optimized for millimeter-wave observations with these sensitive detectors. The design of each is described.

Figures (8)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

The ACT telescope. The mechanical design has a low profile; the surrounding ground screen completely shields the telescope from ground emission. The screen also acts as a weather shield. An additional ground screen (not shown) mounted on the telescope hides the secondary and half the primary from the vantage point of the lower diagram. This inner ground screen is aluminum painted white to reduce solar heating. The primary mirror is 7   m in diameter including its surrounding guard ring. “BUS” refers to the mirror's backup structure (Fig. credit: AMEC Dynamic Structures).

(Color online) Rays traced into the MBAC cryostat (mounted at the far right of the receiver cabin). The stowed position is shown, corresponding to an elevation of 60° (generally, observations will be in the 40 ° 50 ° range). The rays are traced from the central, highest, and lowest fields in the 280   GHz camera (higher in the cryostat) and the 215   GHz camera. Both the 215   GHz camera and the 145   GHz camera (not shown) lie outside the x = 0 midplane, relieving any apparent conflicts between filters and lenses from different cameras. The figure also shows the size and shape of the ACT receiver cabin, as well as the coordinate axes of Eq. (1).

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Cold MBAC reimaging optics. Each frequency has a similar set of lenses and filters. The 280   GHz silicon lenses are labeled Lens 1 to 3 (with Lens 1 closest to the window). IR-blocking and low-pass capacitive mesh filters are all labeled LP; the bandpass filter is labeled BP. An IR-blocking filter (not shown) is also integrated into the window assembly. The temperatures of the components decrease away from the window as indicated. The bandpass filter, Lens 3, and the array are held at 0.3 K.

Fig. 4

Strehl ratio at points in the three ACT fields, as a function of field angle on the sky. The rectangular aspect of the focal plane array is primarily responsible for the departure from square fields, but anamorphic field distortion also contributes. The figure also indicates the relative spacing and size of the three fields. The median Strehl ratios are 0.983, 0.980, and 0.991 for the 280, 215, and 145   GHz cameras.

Fig. 5
Fig. 5

Field distortion for the ACT optical design. The dashed square boxes depict a notional rectangular grid of field points on the sky, without distortion; the solid lines indicate the image of the same grid after it is refocused at the detectors (assuming the nominal 5 .20   m effective focal length).

Fig. 6
Fig. 6

The calculated illumination patterns of the (left) primary and (right) secondary mirrors projected into the ( x , y ) plane for the central 215   GHz detector. The inner dashed circles show the edge of the mirrors, and the outer ones show the guard ring. Fine-scale structure in the right panel is an artifact of numerical precision and finite sampling, but all other structure is real. (Units are dB below peak level.)

Fig. 7
Fig. 7

(Color online) Secondary (ghost) images formed by stray light reflected twice from lens, filter, window, and array surfaces for a source imaged near the top of the 215   GHz detector array. The amplitude and shape of the ghost images shown here are typical of all fields, assuming conservative values for surface reflectivities. The dotted lines cross at the center of the main image (not shown). The solid rectangle 3 .4   cm wide by 3 .6   cm high shows the extent of the focal plane array. The shading indicates the ghost image intensity on a linear scale relative to the peak of the main PSF, saturating at 5 × 10 4 ; the contours show intensities of 47 , 44 , 41 , 38 , 35 , and 32   dB relative to the main PSF. The ghost intensity peaks very near the main PSF at approximately 28   dB , where it is negligible. The diffuse ghost on the opposite side of the array reaches only 41   dB and is unlikely to affect CMB observations.
