Project Description

High Temperature Superconductor Resonator Detectors, Year 2

High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) infrared detectors were studied for years but never matured sufficiently for infusion into instruments. Several recent developments support a renewal of effort: (1) Microresonator technology represents a new approach to array readout that can enable large-scale HTS bolometer arrays for Earth-observing and planetary missions. (2) Space-borne passive cooling and single-stage refrigerators are now commonplace, enabling cost effective cooling to 40-80 K.
