Abstract

We report on our studies of possible configurations for the focal plane of the Constellation-X mission. Taking advantage of new developments in both SQUID multiplexing technology and position-sensitive detectors, we present a viable focal plane intrument design that would greatly enhance the reference Constellation-X configuration of a 32 × 32 array. An order of magnitude increase in the number of pixels of the focal plane array from the current 1024-pixel reference design is achievable.
