Engel, A; Bartolf, H; Gómez, L; Semenov, A; Il'in, K; Schilling, A; Hübers, H W; Siegel, M (2009). NbN superconducting nanowire photon counters: magnetoconductivity and other detector properties. AIP Conference Proceedings, 1185:76-79.

Abstract

We present an analysis of magnetoconductivity measurements on NbN thin films and nanostructures as they are used for superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors. Especially the temperature-dependence of the fluctuation conductivity near the zero-field transition temperature was studied in detail. Together with complementary measurements of the optical constants of NbN films with varying thickness, strategies for improving the absorptivity in NbN thin films are developed. ©2009 American Institute of Physics

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
