Solomon I Woods

Solomon Woods' research interests include optical detector development for low power applications and new calibration techniques for infrared power. He has been part of the team at the Low-Background Infrared (LBIR) facility since 2006, developing new detectors and instruments for infrared calibration. Current research and development projects include an ultra-low power absolute cryogenic radiometer (ACR), a trap detector employing high efficiency blocked-impurity-band (BIB) detectors, and spectral calibrations using a cryogenic Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS).

Research projects:

Transfer radiometers and reference detectors
Pico-Watt ACR
