TES Spectrophotometers for Near IR/Optical/UV



B. Cabrera, John M. Martinis, Aaron J. Miller, Sae Woo Nam, R. W. Romani


We describe our recent progress on superconducting transition-edge sensor (TES) spectrophotometers in the spectral range from the near infrared through ultraviolet bands. These instruments time-stamp (0.1 υs) and energy-resolve (0.15 eV FWHM) each photon with high efficiency. We report on recent observations at the McDonald Observatory 2.7 m telescope.
