The 350 Micrometer Wavelength Superconducting Bolometer Camera for APEX

Abstract

Since spring 2008, the Small Array Bolometer Camera (SABOCA) operates at APEX (Atacama Pathfinder Experiment), a 12 meter radio telescope on the high plateau Llano de Chajnantor in Chile's Atacama Desert. This instrument utilizes an array of 37 transition edge sensors to detect sub-millimeter radiation in a narrow band around 350μm wavelength, which fits… (More)
