Abstract

Superconductivity is a powerful tool for the detection of electromagnetic radiation and the energy in particle interactions. One leading superconducting detector technology is the superconducting transition-edge sensor (TES), which uses a superconducting film biased in the superconducting transition as a sensing element. TES arrays are instrumented by superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) multiplexed amplifiers. Superconducting transition-edge sensors have now evolved beyond the research and development phase, and they are being deployed and used in multiple large-scale applications. We discuss the development of multiplexed superconducting transition-edge sensor arrays, and briefly mention their use in applications ranging from cosmology and submillimeter astronomy to gamma-ray spectroscopy of nuclear materials to aid in nuclear non-proliferation.
