Ultrasensitive Superconducting Photon Detectors

Tuesday, May 11, 2010 – 3:15pm
Reiss 502
Prof. Daniel Prober
Yale University

This talk will describe the physics, development and uses of single photon detectors, covering photon energies from MeV to meV, and wavelengths from 1 picometer to 1 mm. The developments have been driven by many applications, drawn from astronomy, biology, communications, and materials analysis. This talk will present a selection of these developments, and recent device physics research at Yale.
