  1. 1. Ultrasensitive Cold-Electron Bolometer

    Author : Ian Jasper Agulo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; responsivity; electron cooling; cold-electron bolometer CEB ; SIN tunnel junctions; superconducting cold-electron bolometer SCEB ; noise equivalent power;

    Abstract : The Cold-Electron Bolometer (CEB) is an ultrasensitive device designed for the detection of cosmic microwave background radiation. The key to its sensitivity is the electron cooling of the absorber by the superconductor-insulator-normal metal (SIN) tunnel junction. READ MORE

  2. 2. Frequency Selective Cold-Electron Bolometer Arrays

    Author : Sumedh Mahashabde; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mm-wave detectors; Cold-Electron Bolometer; Frequency Selective Surface; Focal Plane array; OLIMPO; LSPE;

    Abstract : This work presents the integration of the Cold-Electron Bolometer (CEB) in Frequency Selective Surface (FSS) based arrays targeting balloon-borne telescope missions with high incident power requirements (typically tens of pW). FSS are planar frequency sensitive structures typically consisting of repeating pattern of a simple motif like square, circle, etc. READ MORE
