Abstract / Description:We present an update on the performance of our 2 mm bolometer camera GISMO (the Goddard IRAM 2 Millimeter Observer), which is used for astronomical observations at the IRAM 30 m Telescope. The camera is optimized to efficiently observe dusty high-redshift galaxies. GISMO uses a monolithic 8 by 16 Backshort Under Grid (BUG) array with superconducting Transition Edge Sensors (TES). It serves as a testbed for our close-packed superconducting bolometer technologies and guides us in optimizing the design of future fast, low background bolometer cameras. Illustrated by astronomical observations we obtained recently, we demonstrate the scientific potential of the camera, highlighted by the detection of two high redshift galaxies.
