Large Aperture Telescope Receiver Milestone

Professor Mark Devlin’s team at UPenn successfully cooled the Large Aperture Telescope Receiver (LATR) cyrostat to under 50 mK.

The first of three Small Aperture Telescopes (SAT-1) is being assembled at UC San Diego in #ClubHighbay and has successfully cooled down to its operating temperature of 100 mK. Currently the detectors and electronics are being incorporated to make the camera fully functional.
