The MINT Project
The MINT (Millimeter INTerferometer) instrument is a second generation telescope designed to study the anisotropies of the Cosmic Microwave Background at small angular resolution (1000 < l < 3000). The primary features are 4 SIS recievers tuned to approximately 150 GHz, a digital Corelator, and a remotely operable platform that fits fully assambled into a standard shipping container. MINT will observe from the high and dry Chilean Andes.
MINT is a project of Princeton University, the origin of countless CMB experiments including the first interferometer designed to study the anisotropy of the CMB. The MINT team is experienced at building and operating instruments at the Chilean observing site.
