Abstract

KAPPa (the Kilopixel Array Pathfinder Project) is developing key technologies to enable the construction of heterodyne focal plane arrays in the terahertz frequency regime with ∼1000 pixels. The leap to ~1000 pixels requires solutions to several key technological problems before the construction of such a focal plane is possible. The KAPPa project will develop a small (16-pixel) 2D integrated heterodyne focal plane array for the 660 GHz atmospheric window as a technological pathfinder towards future kilopixel heterodyne focal plane arrays.
