Longitudinal Proximity Effect Superconducting Transition-Edge Sensor

Metadata Updated: May 2, 2019

Superconducting Transition-Edge Sensors (TESs) hold the highest energy resolving power of any nondispersive spectrometer.[HTML_REMOVED][HTML_REMOVED] They are used for imaging spectroscopy across the electromagnetic spectrum measuring gamma-rays, X-rays, UV, and optical photons and photon fluxes in the microwave band.[HTML_REMOVED] A TES microcalorimeter measures the energy[HTML_REMOVED] of individual photons with high quantum efficiency and without dispersive optics.[HTML_REMOVED] TESs are [HTML_REMOVED]noiseless detectors[HTML_REMOVED] in the astronomy sense where they achieve true single photon detection with zero dark counts.[HTML_REMOVED] The fundamental noise fluctuations in the TES simply limit the measured energy of the photons.[HTML_REMOVED] In this work we will design and fabricate a new type of TES where the sensor material is not a superconductor at any temperature.[HTML_REMOVED]
