    Brookhaven Completes LSST’s Digital Sensor Array

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have completed a 3.2-gigapixel sensor array for the camera that will be used in the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) currently under construction on a mountaintop in Chile.

    Members of the LSST project team at Brookhaven Lab are shown with a prototype raft cryostat. In addition to the rafts, Brookhaven scientists designed and built the cryostats that hold and cool the rafts to −100 °C. Courtesy of Brookhaven National Laboratory.
    The digital sensor array is composed of about 200 16-megapixel sensors, divided into 21 modules called rafts. Each raft can function on its own, but when combined, they will view an area of sky that can…
