Superconducting Detectors

We are developing energy-dispersive x-ray detectors using superconducting circuits. Specifically, we are working on microwave kinetic inductance detectors and transition edge sensor microcalorimeters. The later is in collaboration with groups at NIST and SLAC. We work closely with the staff at Argonne’s Center for Nanoscale Materials cleanroom facility.

The core APS members include: Lisa Gades, Tim Madden, Nino Miceli, Umesh Patel, Orlando Quaranta, Daikang Yan (NU).
