New paper: “Eight-fold signal amplification of a superconducting nanowire single-photon detector using a multiple-avalanche architecture” accepted to Optics Express
[pdf] [abstract] Superconducting nanowire avalanche single-photon detectors (SNAPs) with n parallel nanowires are advantageous over single-nanowire detectors because their output signal amplitude scales linearly with n. However, the SNAP architecture has not been viably demonstrated... Read more >>
