Background Limited Quantum Superconducting Detector for Submillimeter Wavelengths

Authors:
Gregory Gol'tsman, Alexei Semenov, Konstantin Smirnov, Boris Voronov
Abstract:
We propose a concept of the background-limited detector for submillimeter radioastronomy that will have the noise equivalent power [approximately] 10-21 W Hz-112 when operated at 0.3 K and exposed to thermal background radiation with an equivalent temperature of 4 K. The detector is based upon the superconducting photon counter from Titanium film integrated into a planar logarithmic antenna. The planar layout makes feasible integration of the device in a detector array.
