Paper Abstract

This paper reviews a few novel designs of superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs). For polarization-insensitive SNSPDs, we present a fractal-inspired design and a waveguide-integrated design; for lowtiming-jitter SNSPDs, we present SNSPDs integrated with current reservoirs.
