Abstract

The high-resolution mid-infrared spectrometer instrument will fly onboard the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's airborne stratospheric observatory for infrared astronomy in 2019. It will provide astronomers with a unique observing window (25-122 mu m) for exploring the evolution of protoplanetary disks into young solar systems. There are two focal plane detector arrays for the instrument: a high-resolution (lambda / {\varDelta }lambda = 100{,}000) 8× 16 detector array, with a target noise-equivalent power, NEP \le 3 aW/&surd;{Hz}, and a low-resolution (lambda / {\varDelta }lambda =600-19,000) 16× 64 detector array with a target NEP \le 20 aW/&surd;{Hz}. The detectors for both of these arrays are superconducting Mo/Au bilayer transition-edge sensor bolometers on suspended single-crystal silicon membranes. We present detector characterization results for both arrays, including measurements of thermal conductance in comparison with phonon transport models, and measurements of saturation power and noise.
