Semenov, A. D., Goghidze, I. G., Gol’tsman, G. N., Sergeev, A. V., Aksaev, E. E., & Gershenzon, E. M. (1993). Non-equilibrium quasiparticle response to radiation and bolometric effect in YBaCuO films. IEEE Trans. Appl. Supercond., 3(1), 2132–2135.
Abstract: The voltage photoresponse of structured current biased YBCO films on different substrates to 20-ps laser pulses of 0.63- mu m and 1.54- mu m wavelengths and to continuously modulated radiation of 2-mm wavelength is measured to temperatures around Tc. Fast picosecond decay of the response to pulsed radiation is followed by slow exponential relaxation with a nanosecond characteristic time depending on the substrate material and film dimensions. The slow component does not depend on wavelength and is attributed to the bolometric effect, while the magnitude of the fast component associated with nonequilibrium response rises with wavelength. More than an order-of-magnitude increase of the nonequilibrium response is seen from near-infrared to millimeter-wave range. This dependence plausibly reflects the low efficiency of multiplication of photoexcited electrons in YBaCuO compared to conventional superconductors.
