Achieving BLISS: Challenges for Building Fast, Ultra-Sensitive Transition-Edge SensorsTopics: 1.Motivation and Intro to TESs. 2. BLISS Specifications-tolerance to dark power. 3.Measuring stray (dark) power-Tc (alpha) and G measurements. a) Overview two methods: JTD vs. TES. b) TES arrays: measurement and complications for Pd, Tc, and alpha. 4. Results: Pd compare, NEP, tau, 1/f issues. LIRGs and ULIRGs: Excellent example of distinct optical/UV and IR luminosity. Interaction long known, but huge luminosity is not predicted based on optical studies. (greater than 90% of the energy is emitted at in the far-IR). Large luminosity has both starburst and accretion components.
