Roadmap to XEUS

Lead Research Organisation: University College London
Department Name: Mullard Space Science Laboratory


The proposed x-ray mission XEUS is a technologically challenging mission. The proposed cryogenic spectrometer instrument will require detectors to be cooled to the region of 30-50 mK. Adiabatic demagnetisation refrigerators (ADR) are idea coolers for this being independent of gravity. This proposal is to develop the ADR for the proposed XEUS mission.
