  Title An ultra-fast superconducting Nb nanowire single-photon detector for soft x-rays Type Journal Article
  Year 2012 Publication Abbreviated Journal Appl. Phys. Lett.  
  Volume 101 Issue Pages  
  Keywords SSPD, SNSPD, x-ray, Nb  
  Abstract Although superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) are well studied regarding the

detection of infrared/optical photons and keV-molecules, no studies on continuous x-ray photon

counting by thick-film detectors have been reported so far. We fabricated a 100 nm thick niobium

x-ray SNSPD (an X-SNSPD) and studied its detection capability of photons with keV-energies in

continuous mode. The detector is capable to detect photons even at reduced bias currents of 0.4%,

which is in sharp contrast to optical thin-film SNSPDs. No dark counts were recorded in extended

measurement periods. Strikingly, the signal amplitude distribution depends significantly on the photon

energy spectrum.VC
