Abstract

KIDCAM is demonstration of a deployable cryogen-free passive THz imaging technology. A linear focal plane array of Lumped Element Kinetic Inductance Detectors (LEKIDs) is cooled to sub-K temperatures without the consumption of liquid cryogens. The instrument offers extremely high detection sensitivity with video frame rate capability and high spatial resolution to suit many imaging applications. The detector technology is largely insensitive to its environment and can be used within a wide range of THz frequencies.
