ASTE telescope

In CosmoNanoscience we develop new types of astronomical instruments, which enable us to observe galaxies in the early universe in new ways. We take superconducting electronics and nanotechnology as the main toolbox, because we believe that there are many unexplored properties of superconductors that can be used for detecting light, in various ways and with very high sensitivity.
