AbstractThe focal plane assembly of the Athena X-ray Integral Field Unit (X-IFU) includes as the baseline an array of ~4000 single size calorimeters based on Transition Edge Sensors (TES). Other sensor array configurations could however be considered, combining TES of different properties (e.g. size). In attempting to improve the X-IFU performance in terms of field of view, count rate performance, and even spectral resolution, two alternative TES array configurations to the baseline have been simulated, each combining a small and a large pixel array. With the X-IFU end-to-end simulator, a sub-sample of the Athena core science goals, selected by the X-IFU science team as potentially driving the optimal TES array configuration, has been simulated for the results to be scientifically assessed and compared. In this contribution, we will describe the simulation set-up for the various array configurations, and highlight some of the results of the test cases simulated.
