Position-dependent local detection efficiency in a nanowire superconducting single-photon detector


Renema, J J; Wang, Q; Gaudio, R; Komen, I; op ’t Hoog, K; Sahin, D; Schilling, A; van Exter, M P; Fiore, A; Engel, A; de Dood, M J A (2015). Position-dependent local detection efficiency in a nanowire superconducting single-photon detector. Nano letters, 15(7):4541-4545.

Abstract

We probe the local detection efficiency in a nanowire superconducting single-photon detector along the cross-section of the wire with a far subwavelength resolution. We experimentally find a strong variation in the local detection efficiency of the device. We demonstrate that this effect explains previously observed variations in NbN detector efficiency as a function of device geometry.
