Scientists from SRON and TU Delft have developed a method to measure the signal loss in far-infrared instruments, designing a signal-carrying so-called microstrip for DESHIMA-2, a far-infrared instrument for the Atacama Submillimeter Telescope Experiment (ASTE) in Chile. The microstrip loses only 1 in 4900 photons.
DESHIMA-2 is the successor to DESHIMA, which was invented by researchers from SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research and TU Delft. It is being developed by researchers from those institutions with collaborators in the Netherlands and Japan. Far-infrared radiation consists of some of the few wavelengths that our atmosphere allows to pass through.
