Demonstration of 220/280 GHz Multichroic Feedhorn-Coupled TES Polarimeter

January 3, 2020
Author(s)
Samantha L. Walker, Carlos E. Sierra, Jason E. Austermann, James A. Beall, Daniel T. Becker, Bradley J. Dober, Shannon M. Duff, Gene C. Hilton, Johannes Hubmayr, Jeffrey L. Van Lanen, Jeff McMahon, Sara M. Simon, Joel N. Ullom, Michael R. Vissers
We describe the design and measurement of feedhorn-coupled, transition-edge sensor (TES) polarimeters with two passbands centered at 220 GHz and 280 GHz, intended for observations of the cosmic microwave background. Each pixel couples polarized light in

Tile-and-trim micro-resonator array fabrication optimized for high multiplexing factors

November 8, 2018

Christopher M. McKenney, Jason E. Austermann, James A. Beall, Bradley J. Dober, Shannon M. Duff, Jiansong Gao, Gene C. Hilton, Johannes Hubmayr, Dale Li, Joel N. Ullom, Jeffrey L. Van Lanen, Michael R. Vissers
We present a superconducting micro-resonator array fabrication method that is scalable and reconfigurable and has been optimized for high multiplexing factors. The method uses uniformly sized tiles patterned on stepper photolithography reticles as the

Low-Temperature Detectors for CMB Imaging Arrays

August 3, 2018
Author(s)
Johannes Hubmayr, Jason E. Austermann, James A. Beall, Daniel T. Becker, Bradley J. Dober, Shannon M. Duff, Jiansong Gao, Gene C. Hilton, Christopher M. McKenney, Joel N. Ullom, Jeffrey L. Van Lanen, Michael R. Vissers
We review advances in low-temperature detector (LTD) arrays for cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization experiments, with a particular emphasis on imaging arrays. We briefly motivate the science case, which has spurred a large number of independent

Millimeter-Wave Polarimeters Using Kinetic Inductance Detectors for TolTEC and Beyond

March 8, 2018
Author(s)
Jason Austermann, James A. Beall, Sean A. Bryan, Bradley Dober, Jiansong Gao, Gene C. Hilton, Johannes Hubmayr, Phillip Mauskopf, Christopher M. McKenney, S M. Simon, Joel Ullom, Michael Vissers, G W. Wilson
Microwave kinetic inductance detectors (MKIDs) provide a compelling path forward to the large-format polarimeter, imaging, and spectrometer arrays needed for next-generation experiments in millimeter-wave cosmology and astronomy. We describe the

Superconducting micro-resonator arrays with ideal frequency spacing

December 20, 2017
Author(s)
Xiangliang Liu, Weijie Guo, Y Wang, M Dai, L F. Wei , Bradley J. Dober, Christopher M. McKenney, Gene C. Hilton, Johannes Hubmayr, Jason E. Austermann, Joel Ullom, Jiansong Gao, Michael Vissers
We present a wafer trimming technique for producing superconducting micro-resonator arrays with highly uniform frequency spacing. With the light-emitting diode mapper technique demonstrated previously, we first map the measured resonance frequencies to the

Design of 280 GHz feedhorn-coupled TES arrays for the balloon-borne polarimeter SPIDER

July 7, 2016
Author(s)
Johannes Hubmayr, Jason E. Austermann, James A. Beall, Daniel T. Becker, Shannon M. Duff, Arpi L. Grigorian, Gene C. Hilton, Joel N. Ullom, Michael R. Vissers
We describe 280 GHz bolometric detector arrays that instrument the balloon-borne polarimeter spider. A primary science goal of spider is to measure large-scale B-mode polarization of the cosmic microwave back-ground (cmb) in search of the cosmic-inflation

Advanced ACTPol Multichroic Polarimeter Array Fabrication Process for 150 mm Wafers

July 22, 2015

Shannon M. Duff, Gene C. Hilton, Johannes Hubmayr, James A. Beall, Jason E. Austermann, Daniel T. Becker, Jeffrey L. Van Lanen
Advanced ACTPol is a third generation cosmic microwave background (CMB) receiver, deploying in 2016 on the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) in the Atacama desert of Chile. Spanning five frequency bands from 25 – 280 GHz and having a total of nearly 5800
