Design and Fabrication of Absorber Coupled TES Microbolometers on Continuous Silicon-Nitride Windows
- 52 Downloads
The implementation of TES based microbolometer arrays will achieve unprecedented sensitivities for mm and sub-mm astronomy through fabrication of large format arrays and improved linearity and stability arising from strong electro-thermal feedback. We report on progress in developing TES microbolometers using Mo/Au thin films and Au absorbing structures. We present measurements of suppressing the thermal conductance through the etching of features on a continuous Silicon-Nitride window.
