Microbolometers are at present the most sensitive detectors for mm and sub-mm Astronomy. They are in use in most of the present instruments in that bandwidth. We have developed filled arrays of NbSi-based planar antenna coupled microbolometers. The fabrication details are given, together with characterization of the NbSi thermometers and optical results. The optical performances are potentially good for ground-based mm-wave astronomy applications, while the overall detectors performances are limited by low-frequency excess noise in the thermometric NbSi high-impedance sensors (Anderson insulator).
Antenna-coupled arrays of NbSi micro-bolometers does not yet have a rating. At this time, there are no reviews or comments for this scientific paper.If you have personal experience with Antenna-coupled arrays of NbSi micro-bolometers, we encourage you to share that experience with our LandOfFree.com community. Your opinion is very important and Antenna-coupled arrays of NbSi micro-bolometers will most certainly appreciate the feedback.
