Kinetic Inductance Detectors for Far-Infrared Spectroscopy

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Kinetic Inductance Detectors for Far-Infrared Spectroscopy
I propose to do research to develop kinetic inductance detectors (KIDs) as a tool for far-infrared spectroscopy. Incorporating KIDs as the key detector technology of a sub-orbital or satellite mission to observe the sky at far-infrared wavelengths will allow for highly sensitive extragalactic spectroscopy, leading to new insights in galaxy formation and evolution. Specifically, I propose to develop KID technology to allow for improved sensitivity and larger detector arrays for long-slit, direct-detection spectroscopy. More »
