CESAR: Cryogenic Electronics for Space Applications and Research

Observations from space provide real benefits in many scientific fields, like astrophysics. They allow to significantly improve the spectral information compared to ground-based observations.

To carry out these observations, many laboratories are developing new generation ultra-sensitive sensors. The space environment is a major challenge for the development of cryogenic electronics associated with these sensors.

The CESAR project explores new solutions in this area.

The CESAR project funded by the European Union is a collaborative project under the Seventh Framework Program (FP7).

COORDINATOR : Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives (CEA), France

EU FP7 Contract no : 263455
