    Abstract

    We present physical optics simulations of the multi-beam dual-reflector submillimeter-wave telescope on the ESA PLANCK surveyor designed for measuring the temperature anisotropies and polarization characteristics of the cosmic microwave background. The telescope is of a non-conventional Gregorian configuration, with two ellipsoidal reflectors providing a very large field of view at the focal plane where the array of 76 horn antennas feeding low-temperature detectors is located. We analyse the defocusing effects of the system, the polarization properties of the telescope, and the optical performance of the high-frequency channels based on special multi-moded horns operating at 545 and 857 GHz.
