Abstract:

AVALANCHE PHOTO DETECTOR. With this novel design, enhanced sensitivity and high speed can be obtained in a high-temperature superconductor (HTSC) microelectronic device, using a shingle layer of HTSC thin film. A collaboration between David Genner's group at Advanced Fuel Research Inc, (East Hartford, CT) and Prof. J.I. Budnick's group at University of Connecticut (Storrs, CT) will seek to demonstrate this improtant application for the motion of magnetic-flux vortices in type-II superconductors. The novel pile up and avalanche of the vortices has enormous potential for Phase 2 exploitation as a new basis for HTSC device physics. Government market: IR and Optical spectroscopy, detector array and imaging.
