A Low Noise 64x64 Germanium Array for Far IR Astronomy, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

A Low Noise 64x64 Germanium Array for Far IR Astronomy, Phase I
We propose to investigate the feasibility of developing a 64x64 far infrared germanium focal-plane array with the following key design features: 1- Four top-illuminated, 32x32 germanium sub-arrays will be tiled together to form a 64x64 mosaic array. Germanium offers very low noise and proven performance in the 50-140µm range. More »
