The SPICA-SAFARI detector system: TES detector arrays with frequency-division multiplexed SQUID readout
Optional Fields
Astrophysics bolometers frequency-division multiplexing superconducting devices system-level design
The SAFARI instrument is a far-infrared imaging Fourier transform spectrometer for JAXA's SPICA mission. Taking advantage of the low emission of SPICA's 5 K telescope, SAFARI will provide sky background-limited, Nyquist-sampled spectroscopic imaging of a 2′ × 2′ field-of-view over 34-210 μm, creating significant new possibilities for far-infrared astronomy. SAFARI's aggressive science goals drive the development of a unique detector system combining large-format Transition Edge Sensor arrays and frequency division multiplexed SQUID readout with a high 160× multiplexing factor. The detectors and their cold readout electronics are packaged into 3 focal plane arrays that will be integrated into SAFARI's focal plane unit. Here we present the preliminary system design and current development status of the SAFARI detector system. © 2011 IEEE.
