Abstract:
We present a concept and experimental development of an ultrasensitive normal metal hot-electron microbolometer with Andreev mirrors and electronic cooling by superconductor-insulator-normal metal (SIN) tunnel junctions. A value NEP = 5×10-18 W/Hz1/2 for the temperature fluctuations component of noise and the thermal time constant t= 0.2 µs at 300 mK have been estimated for one of the realized devices with thermal conductance G [approx equal to] 6×10-12 W/K. Such microbolometer is intended as a detector of millimeter and submillimeter wave radiation.
