New publication: “Single-photon imager based on a superconducting nanowire delay line”
We demonstrate a scalable single-photon imager using a single continuous superconducting nanowire that is not only a single-photon detector but also functions as an efficient microwave delay line. In this... Read more >>

New publication: “A nanocryotron comparator can connect single-flux-quantum circuits to conventional electronics”
We demonstrate the use of a single three-terminal superconducting-nanowire device, called the nanocryotron (nTron), as a digital comparator to combine SFQ circuits with mature semiconductor circuits such as complementary metal... Read more >>

New publication: “Using Geometry to Sense Current”
We describe a superconducting three-terminal Y-shaped device that uses a simple geometric effect known as current crowding to sense the flow of current and actuate a readout signal. A complete description... Read more >>
