A major facility for designing, manufacturing and testing a new generation of superconducting detectors for astrophysics and the applied sciences

The Group runs a major facility for designing, manufacturing and testing a new generation of superconducting detectors for astrophysics and the applied sciences.

Most of the work relates to the development of large-format superconducting cameras for millimetre-wave, submillimetre-wave and far-infrared wavelengths. Some of the work relates to the development of time-resolved photon-counting spectroscopy and imaging for x-ray wavelengths.

The state-of-the-art facility, which is aimed at the development of large-scale integrated superconducting electronics, was established through a JIF award, and a major donation of equipment and intellectual property by Oxford Instruments Plc.
