Approaches to the Optimal Nonlinear Analysis of Microcalorimeter Pulses

Joseph W. Fowler, Christine G. Pappas, Bradley K. Alpert, William B. Doriese, Galen C. O'Neil, Joel N. Ullom, Daniel S. Swetz
We consider how to analyze microcalorimeter pulses for quantities that are nonlinear in the data, while preserving the signal-to-noise advantages of linear

Dependence of transition width on current and critical current in transition-edge sensors

If transition-edge sensor (TES) X-ray detectors are to be useful in photon-rich environments,they must maintain high resolving power when pulse durations are
