Scientists team up with industry to mass-produce detectors for next-gen cosmic experiment
Chasing clues about the infant universe in relic light known as the cosmic microwave background, or CMB, scientists are devising more elaborate and ultrasensitive detector arrays to measure the properties of this light with increasing precision. To meet the high demand for these detectors that will drive next-generation CMB experiments, and for similar detectors to serve other scientific needs, researchers at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are pushing to commercialize the manufacturing process so that these detectors can be mass-produced quickly and affordably.
