Paper Abstract

It has been shown that thin films of the high temperature superconductors (HTS) exhibit a change in their electrical properties when exposed to optical radiation. The motivation for this research is the promise of a fast detector operating at elevated temperatures that is sensitive to low-level optical signals and that operates out to the far IR. In order to make a practical detector out of HTS materials, the mechanisms of this response must be fully understood. The purpose of this research is to investigate the spectral, temporal, and thermal characteristics of this response in an effort to better understand the mechanisms involved.
