Mechanism of Light Detection in Current-Biased Superconducting ${\rm MgB}_{2}$ Microbridges

Abstract

We report on time-resolved, transient photoimpedance measurements performed on current-biased microbridges excited by 100-fs wide, 800-nm wavelength, and 76-MHz repetition-rate optical pulses. Our bridges had dimensions of 20 mum by 40 mum and were patterned by conventional photolithography and ion milling from 150-nm-thick, epitaxial MgB2 films grown by a… (More)
