Abstract. Cryogenic micro-calorimeters are suitable to detect small amounts of energy deposited by electromagnetic and nuclear interactions, which makes them attractive in a variety of applications on ground and in space. To date, the only X-ray micro-calorimeter that operated in orbit is the X-Ray Spectrometer (XRS) on-board of the japanese Suzaku satellite. We discuss the analysis of the components of its residual background spectrum with the support of MonteCarlo simulations.
Key words: X-ray micro-calorimeters, particle background, data analysis, numerical computation
