NIKA2 arrays for the 1mm and 2mm spectral bands


  • Dr. Johannes GOUPY

Auteurs principaux


The NIKA2 instrument, operating at the IRAM 30-meters telescope, is based on the LEKID array technology dedicated to millimeter wave astronomy. This instrument is composed of one low frequency array for the 120-180GHz range, and two high frequency polarization sensitive arrays for the 220-280GHz range. Since 2013 different versions of the arrays have been developed for NIKA2. We will describe the fabrication process developed for these arrays and review the results of their in-lab measurements and characterization.
