Dynamic acoustic optimization of pulse tube refrigerators for rapid cooldown

April 23, 2024
Ryan Snodgrass, Vincent Kotsubo, Scott Backhaus, Joel Ullom
Pulse tube refrigerators are a critical enabling technology for many disciplines that require low temperatures. These refrigerators dominate the total power consumption of most modern cryostats, including those that reach millikelvin temperatures using

Design of a 3000 pixel transition-edge sensor x-ray spectrometer for microcircuit tomography

August 1, 2021
Paul Szypryt, Douglas Bennett, William J. Boone, Amber L. Dagel, G Dalton, William Doriese, Malcolm Durkin, Joseph Fowler, Edward Garboczi, Jonathon D. Gard, Gene Hilton, Jozsef Imrek, E S. Jimenez, Vincent Y. Kotsubo, K Larson, Zachary H. Levine, John Mates, D McArthur, Kelsey Morgan, Nathan J. Nakamura, Galen O'Neil, Nathan Ortiz, Christine G. Pappas, Carl Reintsema, Dan Schmidt, Daniel Swetz, K R. Thompson, Joel Ullom, C Walker, Joel C. Weber, Abigail Wessels, J W. Wheeler
Feature sizes in integrated circuits have decreased substantially over time, and it has become increasingly difficult to three-dimensionally image these complex circuits after fabrication. This can be important for process development, defect analysis, and

Compact 1.7 K Cryocooler for Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detectors

June 18, 2020
Vincent Y. Kotsubo, Joel N. Ullom, Sae Woo Nam
State-of-the-art superconductor-based cryogenic detector systems are being installed at numerous research facilities worldwide and are achieving world-record sensitivities in a variety of applications. Implementation has been greatly facilitated by closed

A 300-mK Test Bed for Rapid Characterization of Microwave SQUID Multiplexing Circuits

August 3, 2018
Abigail L. Wessels, Daniel T. Becker, Douglas A. Bennett, Johnathon D. Gard, Johannes Hubmayr, Norman Jarosik, Vincent Y. Kotsubo, John A. Mates, Joel N. Ullom
Microwave SQUID multiplexing is a promising technique for multiplexing large arrays of transition edge sensors. A major bottleneck in the development and distribution of microwave SQUID multiplexer chips occurs in the time-intensive design testing and

Compact 2.2 K Cooling System for Superconducting Nanowire Single Photon Detectors

January 25, 2017
Vincent Y. Kotsubo, Ray Radebaugh, Sae Woo Nam, Joel N. Ullom, Brandon L. Wilson, Paul Hendershott, Micheal Bonczyski
We are developing a compact, low power, closed cycle cooling system for Superconducting Nanowire Single Photon Detectors. The base temperature of the present prototype, which uses a helium-4 Joule-Thomson stage, is 2.2 K with over 1.2 mW of cooling. This

Observation of bias-specific telegraph noise in large transition-edge sensors

December 11, 2012
Vincent Y. Kotsubo, Douglas A. Bennett, Mark Croce, Michael W. Rabin, Daniel R. Schmidt, Joel N. Ullom
We have observed anomalous random telegraph noise in discrete regions of voltage bias throughout the superconducting transition in larger transition-edge sensors (TESs). The bimodal nature of these noise features is consistent with thermally activated

A high resolution gamma-ray spectrometer based on superconducting microcalorimeters

September 28, 2012
Douglas A. Bennett, Robert D. Horansky, Daniel R. Schmidt, Andrew Hoover, Ryan Winkler, Bradley K. Alpert, James A. Beall, William B. Doriese, Joseph W. Fowler, Gene C. Hilton, Kent D. Irwin, Nathan J. Hoteling, Vincent Y. Kotsubo, John A. Mates, Galen C. O'Neil, Michael W. Rabin, Carl D. Reintsema, Francis J. Schima, Daniel S. Swetz, Leila R. Vale, Joel N. Ullom
Improvements in superconductor device fabrication, detector hybridization techniques, and superconducting quantum interference device readout have made square-centimeter-sized arrays of gammaray microcalorimeters, based on transition-edge sensors (TESs)
