abstract

MUSIC (the Multiwavelength Submillimeter kinetic Inductance Camera) is an instrument being developed for the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory by Caltech, JPL, the University of Colorado, and UCSB. MUSIC uses microwave kinetic inductance detectors (MKIDs) - superconducting micro-resonators - as photon detectors. The readout is almost entirely at room temperature and is highly multiplexed. MUSIC will have 576 spatial pixels in four bands at 850, 1100, 1300 and 2000 microns. MUSIC is scheduled for deployment at the CSO in the winter of 2010/2011. We present an overview of the camera design and readout and describe the current status of the instrument and some results from the highly successful May/June 2010 observing run at the CSO with the prototype camera, which verified the performance of the complete system (optics, antennas/filters, resonators, and readout) and produced the first simultaneous 3-color observations with any MKID camera.
