We present a design for a multipixel, multiband (100 GHz, 200 GHz and 400 GHz) sub-millimeter instrument: SAMBA (Superconducting Antenna-coupled, Multi-frequency, Bolometric Array). SAMBA uses slot antenna coupled bolometers and microstrip filters. The concept allows for a much more compact, multiband imager compared to a comparable feedhorn-coupled(More)
We are developing arrays of feedhorn-coupled, silicon nitride micromesh ('spider web') bolometers for the ESA/NASA Planck Surveyor and Herschel Space Observatory for millimeter to far-infrared wavelengths. These detector systems realize high end-to-end optical efficiency, essentially fill the available focal surface, and achieve background-limited(More)
