Zoom link:


  • Organizers to consult with relevant L2s and SEs
  • Present progress towards readout technology recommendation, or decision, or status thereof
  • Present progress towards optical coupling technology decision, or status thereof
  • Present prototype design, and fabrication and testing plan (S4 wafers tested by end of 2020)
  • Summarize/update technical risks, R&D / simulation needs to retire those risks
  • Define interfaces between Detectors, Readout, and Modules. (Who provides non-detector coupling wafers? Who bonds? How are fab resources allocated between squids and detectors? Etc etc)
  • Plan schedule of design reviews for these subsystems needed before CD1


Parallel session 1 (9am-11am): Detectors and Module Interfaces

TBC = To-be Confirmed

  • Optical coupling technology:
    • Summary of optical assessment and committee comments (TBC: Mark R., 20-min)
    • Discussion of next milestones, steps, and schedule (TBC: Toki Suzuki representing L2s, 20-min)
  • Progress on determining detector specifications and flowdown (TBC: Jeff McMahon / John Ruhl, 20-min)
  • CDFG overview of status, plans, next steps (TBC: Mark R., 20-min)
    • Detector wafer specifications, interfaces, and module design (TBC: Adam Anderson, 20-min)
  • Design review schedule and development goals for August agency review and CD-1 (TBC: Clarence Chang representing L2s, 20-min)

Parallel session 2 (11am-130pm): Readout and Prototype Module Testing

  • Progress towards readout technology recommendation or decision (30 or 45-min?)
    • Summary of readout assessment and comments (TBC: Amy or Zeesh)
    • Discussion of next milestones and steps in process (TBC: Amy or Zeesh)
    • Down-select metrics
  • Systems engineering and interfaces (Jim G. 15 or 20 min?)
  • Progress on determine readout specifications and flowdown (TBC: Jeff McMahon / John Ruhl, 15 or 30-min?)
  • Readout-related detector testing needs (30-min) - (TBC: Adam Anderson)
    • Module and readout related testing needs for detector testing
    • Discuss overall landscape, and what makes sense given status of readout downselect, and what resources are available
  • Summary and discussion
