  Title Sensitivity of a superconducting nanowire detector for single ions at low energy Type Journal Article
  Year 2012 Publication Nanotechnol. Abbreviated Journal Nanotechnol.

  Keywords NbN SSPD, SNSPD, superconducting single ion detector, SSID, SNSID  
  Abstract We report on the characterization of a superconducting nanowire detector for ions at low kinetic energies. We measure the absolute single-particle detection efficiency eta and trace its increase with energy up to eta = 100%. We discuss the influence of noble gas adsorbates on the cryogenic surface and analyze their relevance for the detection of slow massive particles. We apply a recent model for the hot-spot formation to the incidence of atomic ions at energies between 0.2 and 1 keV. We suggest how the differences observed for photons and atoms or molecules can be related to the surface condition of the detector and we propose that the restoration of proper surface conditions may open a new avenue for SSPD-based optical spectroscopy on molecules and nanoparticles.
