Sensors and Detectors

HYPRES has a number of programs aimed at sensing and detecting electromagnetic radiation. Using both cryogenic and room temperature materials, our development programs aim to cover the spectrum from ELF (sub-hertz) through infrared and mm-wave and up to X-rays.

  • Uncooled Infrared Detectors (micromachined)
  • STJ X-ray detecors
  • Micromachined mm-wave filters (room temperature)
  • SQUIDs
    • Analog SQUIDs
    • Digital SQUIDs
