Paper Abstract

Superconducting films have been shown to be very sensitive, broadband, low noise infrared sensors. Granular, low dimensional superconducting films of Nb, NbN, Nbn/BN as well as the high transition temperature cuprates have been studied over the last decade and shown to have unusual physical properties that make them especially suitable for use as mm-wave and infrared detectors. In this paper, this work will be reviewed with an eye toward projecting the ultimate utility of superconducting sensors
