Antenna-coupled MKIDs for an Integral Field Unit at 7.8 THz

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review

Abstract

A focal plane array of extended-hemispherical silicon lenses coupled to aluminum coplanar-waveguide (CPW) Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors (MKIDs) has been designed to operate at 7.8 THz. Low-dispersive leaky-wave radiation has been used to efficiently illuminate the antireflection-coated lenses. To minimize the radiation loss from the antenna feeding lines at these high frequencies, the CPWs have been miniaturized and placed on a dielectric membrane. A test device has been fabricated and its experimental characterization in terms of sensitivity, optical coupling, and beam patterns is ongoing.
