1. Using 3D Nanotomography to Visualize Defects in the Fabrication of Superconducting Electronics
Topic: Superconductors
Published: 9/23/2015
Authors: Aric Warner Sanders, Anna E Fox, Paul David Dresselhaus
Abstract: Superconducting electronics is an established technological field for sensors, quantum computation and quantum-based standards and is emerging as an important low-power alternative to semiconductors. As in any electronics fabrication, the production ...

2. Differential sampling measurement of a 7 V rms Sine Wave with a Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard
Topic: Superconductors
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Alain Rufenacht, Charles J Burroughs, Paul David Dresselhaus, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: A 10 V programmable Josephson voltage standard has enabled sine waves with voltages up to 7 V rms to be accurately measured with a differential sampling measurement technique. Expanding the voltage range for this technique enables direct calibration ...

3. A three-dimensional, polarization-insensitive superconducting nanowire avalanche photodetector
Topic: Superconductors
Published: 12/20/2012
Authors: Varun Boehm Verma, Francesco F. Marsili, Adriana E Lita, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Single-photon detectors are an essential tool for a wide range of applications in quantum information, quantum communications, and quantum optics. Over the past decade, superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) have become promising a ...

4. Silicon Micromachines for Fun and Profit
Topic: Superconductors
Published: 12/12/2012
Authors: David Bishop, Flavio Pardo, Cris Bolle, Randy Giles, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: Over the last decade or so a group of us, while working at Bell Labs, have been able to develop a large number of silicon micromachines for a wide range of applications. In this article, which is part of a special volume to celebrate the career of ...

5. Superconducting multiplexer filter bank for a frequency-selective power limiter
Topic: Superconductors
Published: 12/23/2010
Authors: Eduard Rocas, Alberto Padilla, Jordi Mateu, Juan C. Collado Gomez, James C Booth, Juan M. O'Callaghan
Abstract: This work proposes a superconducting multiplexer filter bank configuration to be used as a frequency-selective power limiter. The proposed configuration limits narrowband high power signals without degrading the signal performance in the remainder fr ...

6. Superconducting transition-edge sensors optimized for high-efficiency photon-number resolving detectors
Topic: Superconductors
Published: 4/27/2010
Authors: Adriana E Lita, Brice R. Calkins, Lenson Pellouchoud, Aaron J Miller, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Superconducting photon detectors have emerged as a powerful new option for detecting single photons. System detection efficiency that incorporates the quantum efficiency of the device and system losses is one of the most important single-photon detec ...

7. Advanced Metrology for Nanoelectronics at the National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: Superconductors
Published: 3/11/2009
Authors: Joaquin (Jack) Martinez, Yaw S Obeng, Stephen Knight
Abstract: A broad range of programs at the National Institute of Standards and Technology address critical metrology and characterization challenges facing the nanoelectronics industry. A brief history of the program will be included. From these programs we ...

8. Ultra-high resolution alpha particle spectroscopy using calorimetry
Topic: Superconductors
Published: 9/23/2008
Authors: Robert D Horansky, Joel Nathan Ullom, James A Beall, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, Don Dry, Beth Hastings, Stephen Lamont, Clifford R Rudy, Michael W Rabin
Abstract: Calorimetry has been used since the late 1700?s to measure the heat output of physical processes ranging from chemical reactions to the respiration of organisms . Calorimetry is performed by measuring the temperature change caused by heat release int ...

9. Operation of an X-ray transition-edge sensor cooled by tunnel junction refrigerators
Topic: Superconductors
Published: 1/19/2008
Authors: Nathan A Tomlin, James A Beall, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, Galen C O\'Neil, Daniel R Schmidt, Leila R Vale, Joel Nathan Ullom
Abstract: We demonstrate successful cooling of an X-ray transition-edge sensor (TES) using solid-state refrigerators based on normal-metal/insulator/superconductor (NIS) tunnel junctions. Above the TES transition temperature (Tc), we use Johnson noise thermome ...
