Paper Abstract

Readout configurations for low-temperature resistive bolometers, such as those based on Neutron Transmuted Doped Germanium thermometers or NbSi thin film thermometers are discussed. These detectors are ground to be very useful when studying physical phenomena with low energy deposition due to their high sensitivity, high energy resolution, low detected energy threshold; such as x-ray and far IR spectrometer, Dark Matter searches and double beta decay. The quality of the information obtained from the detector critically depends on readout electronics. Comparative discussion of bolometer readout types describes some results of front-end electronics developed for EDELWEISS and Planck Surveyor collaborations.
