Paper Abstract

This paper is concerned with testing and characterizing superconducting thin films as infrared detectors. A laboratory test facility has been designed, assembled, and checked out at the Infrared Laboratory of the Optical Sciences Center, University of Arizona. Several superconducting thin films have been installed in the test facility and subjected to preliminary testing. None of these films were specifically designed to be infrared detectors and there was no reason to expect high performance from them. The tests, however, served to confirm the ability of the test setup to obtain accurate, repeatable, reliable detector-performance data.
