Abstract

The increasing sensitivity of high impedance cryogenic detectors demands amplification stages closer to detectors to guarantee high performance. We have developed a cryogenic installation to measure the intrinsic noise, the gain, and the DC characteristics of HEMTs or MOSFETs at low temperature. Components under test are mounted in a helium cryostat containing a double stage \(^{3}\)He/\(^{4}\)He sorption cooler to perform sub-kelvin measurements. In this work, we describe this installation and present the encouraging first results that have revealed a level of intrinsic input voltage noise of a HEMT, developed by CNRS/LPN, of 0.44 nV/sqrt(Hz) at 1 kHz at 480 mK (Cin \(=\) 100 pF).
