Real-time video rate imaging and automatic recognition of threats and contraband items that were concealed beneath layers of clothing on moving passengers was recently demonstrated with a prototype passive sub-mm imaging system at Cardiff Airport in the UK. The passengers did not have to divest their outer clothing layers and the instrument was able to distinguish between threat and non-threat...
We report on the development of commercially fabricated multi-chroic antenna coupled Transition Edge Sensor (TES) bolometer arrays for Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) polarimetry experiments. The orders of magnitude increase in detector count for next generation CMB experiments require a new approach in detector wafer production to increase fabrication throughput.
We describe collaborative...
