Welcome to the XQC sounding rocket experiment. XQC stands for X-Ray Quantum Calorimeter, a soft x-ray spectrometer used for suborbital astrophysical observations. The XQC sounding rocket payload is designed to study the diffuse X-Ray background in the energy range from 0. 05 to 1 keV at very high spectral resolution. The diffuse x-ray background is thought to emanate from a local region of hot interstellar gas.
The X-ray Quantum Calorimeter (XQC) project is a joint effort between the University of Wisconsin and Goddard Space Flight Center to resolve the spectrum of the soft (<1 keV) x-ray background using an array of very sensitive microcalorimeters. These microcalorimeters, which operate at a temperature of 60mK, provide an energy resolution of less than 10eV at 1/4 keV.
