Paper Abstract

Composite microcalorimeters using neutron transmutation-doped germanium (NTD) thermistors have been tested at hard x-ray energies. We present a broad band spectrum showing the energy resolution at 60 keV to be approximately 50 eV. The application of these microcalorimeters to the field of nuclear line astrophysics is discussed.
