    Abstract

    We present an ongoing programme of work to investigate the use of large dielectric lenses with coating layers for future satellite-based cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarimetry missions. The primary purpose of this study is to validate modelling and manufacturing techniques. We present details of the study, and preliminary results of material and lens testing.
