|Title:||Lattice damage in superconducting microcalorimeter detectors|
|Published:||June 03, 2013|
|Abstract:||There is currently significant interest in using superconducting detectors for measurement of ion kinetic energies. Unprecedented resolution is possible with an order of magnitude improvement over semiconductors. Superconducting detectors are now able to probe the resolution limitations imposed by structural defects caused by incoming ions. Here we will calculate the expected resolution limits due to ion damage, as well as use the Monte Carlo simulation SRIM to compare results. Finally, comparison to on-going experiments will be made when possible.|
