Title: Fabrication of Detector Arrays for the SPT-3G Receiver

Abstract

The South Pole Telescope third-generation (SPT-3G) receiver was installed during the austral summer of 2016-2017. It is designed to measure the cosmic microwave background across three frequency bands centered at 95, 150, and 220 GHz. The SPT-3G receiver has ten focal plane modules, each with 269 pixels. Each pixel features a broadband sinuous antenna coupled to a niobium microstrip transmission line. In-line filters define the desired band-passes before the signal is coupled to six bolometers with Ti/Au/Ti/Au transition edge sensors (three bands x two polarizations). In total, the SPT-3G receiver is composed of 16,000 detectors, which are read out using a 68 x frequency-domain multiplexing scheme. In this paper, we present the process employed in fabricating the detector arrays.
