Development of an MKIDs-Based THz Superconducting Imaging Array (TeSIA) at 0.85 THz

Development of an MKIDs-Based THz Superconducting Imaging Array (TeSIA) at 0.85 THz Dome A, the highest point of the cold and dry Antarctic ice sheet, offers the best access to atmospheric windows at THz/FIR wavelengths on Earth. China is planning to build a 5-m THz telescope (DATE5) there. To achieve its scientific goals associated with large sky surveys, we are developing a THz superconducting imaging array (TeSIA) at 0.85 THz (350-μm window) with a pixel number of 32 × 32 and targeting background-limited sensitivity. In this paper, detailed system design and performance of the TeSIA based on aluminum MKIDs are presented. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Low Temperature Physics Springer Journals

Abstract

Dome A, the highest point of the cold and dry Antarctic ice sheet, offers the best access to atmospheric windows at THz/FIR wavelengths on Earth. China is planning to build a 5-m THz telescope (DATE5) there. To achieve its scientific goals associated with large sky surveys, we are developing a THz superconducting imaging array (TeSIA) at 0.85 THz (350-μm window) with a pixel number of 32 × 32 and targeting background-limited sensitivity. In this paper, detailed system design and performance of the TeSIA based on aluminum MKIDs are presented.
