A general survey of the principles of radio astronomy receivers is presented. System noise temperature, the sensitivity of different receiver types, and the calibration of receivers are studied. A total-power receiver is analyzed as a basic radio telescope receiver and. the results are used to obtain the performance of other receiver types such as the Dicke receiver, Graham's receiver, correlation receiver, and phase-switching receiver.
