Abstract
The ALMA telescope has been producing ground-breaking science since 2011, but it is mostly based on front-end and back-end technology from the 2000s. In order to keep ALMA competitive in the coming decade, timely updates are necessary in order to further improve the science output of the telescope. In NAOJ, we have been doing research leading to technological developments which aim to increase the field-of-view of the telescope, and the RF and instantaneous bandwidth for more efficient and accurate spectral surveys. In this contribution, we will describe the most important technical achievements by our group in recent years.
