Progress on NIKA2 future development

The NIKA2 team are continuously working on improving the performance of the NIKA2 arrays. In this talk, we present our recent developments on the 1mm array from three aspects. Firstly, a small pixel design has been studied to achieve higher angular resolution. Secondly, a thorough simulation and FTS measurements have been performed to understand the frequency response. Thirdly, a capacitor trimming technique has been performed on a 112-pixel test array and 96.4% optical yield is achieved. These developments could be applied for future arrays.
