Future Work

The good results obtained for the OPA350 working under cryogenic conditions make us optimistic about the use of other commercial chips for near-infrared instruments. More detailed tests will be performed on the OPA350 at 77K (the current parameters were obtained at 115K) and several other chips will be tested in the near future at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC). We aim at getting a database of commercial off-the-shelf components that behave correctly in cryogenics, so that we can use them in the future with guarantee and knowing their detailed behavior (that is, their parameters and reliability).
