Tunable Superconducting Properties of a-NbSi Thin Films and Application to Detection in Astrophysics

Abstract : We report on the superconducting properties of amorphous Nb (x) Si1-x thin films. The normal-state resistance and critical temperatures can be separately adjusted to suit the desired application. Notably, the relatively low electron-phonon coupling of these films makes them good candidates for an "all electron bolometer" for Cosmological Microwave Background radiation detection. Moreover, this device can be made to suit both high and low impedance readouts.
