Abstract:
Imaging array design for 650 GHz SIS photon detector array, which we call superconducting terahertz digital camera, is discussed. Focal plane optics and cryogenic readout electronics are two major topics for the array developments. Lens arrays are discussed to make high optical efficiency and compact focal plane assembly. Cryogenic readout electronics were designed and fabricated based on GaAs-JFET technologies. These designs are similar to CMOS digital camera, but operate at cryogenic temperature, and we can make use all the advantage of the digital camera technologies for the superconducting terahertz digicam.
