Paper Abstract

We present a novel configuration for a photon number resolving detector based on a series array of shunted superconducting nanowires, which has the potential to provide a high dynamic range. The first prototype of the detector consisting of four series elements is demonstrated with the ability to resolve up to four photons in an incident optical pulse at the telecommunication wavelength window.
