    • Thermal Crosstalk Measurements and Simulations for an X-ray Microcalorimeter Array 

      Miniussi, Antoine R.; Adams, Joseph S.; Bandler, Simon R.; Beaumont, Sophie; Chang, Meng P.; Chervenak, James A.; Finkbeiner, Fred M.; Ha, Jong Y.; Hummatov, Ruslan; Kelley, Richard L.; Kilbourne, Caroline A.; Porter, Frederick S.; Sadleir, John E.; Sakai, Kazuhiro; Smith, Stephen J.; Wakeham, Nicholas A.; Wassell, Edward J. (Springer, 2020-01-18)
      Arrays of high-density microcalorimeters require careful heat sinking in order to minimize the thermal crosstalk between nearby pixels. For the array of microcalorimeters developed for the Athena X-ray Integral Field Unit ...
