Abstract

A method to stabilize cryogenic detectors with superconducting phase transition thermometers in their operating point is presented. Measurements of X-ray lines emitted by an 55Fe X-ray fluorescence source showed an improvement in energy resolution from 230 to 133 eV on the 1.5 keV aluminum line with this technique. Furthermore the required set-up allows to simulate real events by injecting heat pulses into the thermometer and in this way to calibrate the detector and to monitor its long-term stability.
