Abstract
After the design of the calorimeter array for the high-resolution x-ray spectrometer (XRS) on the original Astro-E was frozen, new fabrication techniques became available and our understanding of these devices continually increased. We are now able to complete the optimization of this technology and, potentially, to increase the capability of new XRS instrument for Astro-E2, our on-going sounding recket experiments, and possible further applications. The most significant improvement comes from greatly reducing the excess noise of the ion-implanted thermistors by increasing the thickness of the implanted region.
