Focal plane array of thermo-electric bolometers
Paper in proceedings, 2010

Novel concepts of the parallel and series array of Thermo-Electric Bolometers (TEB) with Superconductor-Insulator-Normal (SIN) Tunnel Junctions [1] have been proposed and realized for a distributed focal plane antenna. The arrays are developed for a pixel design based on arrays of TEBs coupled to a distributed slot antenna or dipole antenna [2] similar to array of Cold-Electron Bolometers (CEB) [3,4].
