18 July 2008 Automatic setup of SCUBA-2 detector arrays
Author Affiliations +
The detector arrays for the SCUBA-2 instrument consist of TES bolometers with superconducting amplifier and multiplexing circuits based on Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs). The SCUBA-2 TES arrays and their multiplexed SQUID readouts need to be set-up carefully to achieve correct performance. Algorithms have been developed and implemented based on the first available commissioning grade detector, enabling the array to be set up and optimized automatically.
