rf surface impedance of a two-band superconductor
In this paper, we apply the two-band extension [1] of BCS theory [2] into the Mattis-Bardeen theory [3] to obtain the surface impedance of a two-band superconductor, and apply it to magnesium
Development of Superconducting Nanowire Single Photon Detector Technologies for Advanced Applications
Measurements of the response of superconducting nanowire single photon detector (SNSPD) devices to changes in various forms of input power can be used for characterization of the devices and for
Superconducting Nonlinear Kinetic Inductance Devices
We describe a novel class of devices based on the nonlinearity of the kinetic inductance of a superconducting thin film. By placing a current-dependent inductance in a microwave resonator, small
A new first-principles calculation of field-dependent RF surface impedance of BCS superconductor and application to SRF cavities
There is a need to better understand the intrinsic limit of radiofrequency (RF) surface impedance that determines the performance of superconducting RF cavities in particle accelerators. Here we
Superconducting Microwave Resonator Arrays for Submillimeter/Far-infrared Imaging
Superconducting microwave resonators have the potential to revolutionize submillimeter and far-infrared astronomy, and with it our understanding of the universe. The field of low-temperature detector
The physics of superconducting microwave resonators
Over the past decade, low temperature detectors have brought astronomers revolutionary new observational capabilities and led to many great discoveries. Although a single low temperature detector has
Current-enabled optical conductivity of superconductors
In most superconductors, optical excitations require impurity scattering or the presence of multiple bands. This is because in clean single-band superconductors, the combination of particle-hole and
Breakdown of induced p± ip pairing in a superconductor-semiconductor hybrid
Superconductor-semiconductor hybrids are platforms for realizing effective p-wave superconductivity. Spin-orbit coupling, combined with the proximity effect, causes the two-dimensional semiconductor
Topological anomalous skin effect in Weyl superconductors
We show that a Weyl superconductor can absorb light via a novel surface-to-bulk mechanism, which we dub the topological anomalous skin effect. This occurs even in the absence of disorder for a
