Infrared transmissometer to measure the thickness of NbN thin films

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We present an optical setup that can be used to characterize the thicknesses of thin NbN films to screen samples for fabrication and to better model the performance of the resulting superconducting nanowire single photon detectors. The infrared transmissometer reported here is easy to use, gives results within minutes, and is nondestructive. Thus, the thickness measurement can be easily integrated into the workflow of deposition and characterization. Comparison to a similar visible-wavelength transmissometer is provided.
