New video “Studying Superconducting Thin Films”

Summer Program: Studying superconducting thin film

This summer, Lily Hallett investigated superconducting MoN thin films for use in nanowire single-photon detectors. She optimized deposition conditions for DC Magnetron Sputtering of MoN films and studied their superconducting and electrical properties. Low-pressure annealing experiments were performed in the sputtering chamber to increase the critical temperature of 5 nm films.
