Abstract

Astronomical observations at infrared, sub-millimetre, and millimetre wavelengths are essential for addressing many of the key questions in astrophysics. Future ground- and space based observatories need large detector arrays with a sensitivity limited only by the noise of the radiation background. We demonstrate that antenna coupled Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors allow us to create kpixel large arrays with background limited sensitivity over the entire FIR/mmwavelength range. We discuss in detail the readout system and experimental results of a 961 pixel array, optimised for 850 GHz radiation that is read out with a single readout chain.
