Аннотация

The quantum efficiency of superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors has been systematically studied in a broad spectral range from near ultra-violet to near infrared radiation. Detectors were made from NbN films on sapphire substrates and had thicknesses between 4 and 12 nm. The gradual reduction of the quantum efficiency with increasing wavelength is caused by a crossover from the "hot-spot" to the "vortex" detection scenario. For thicker films the wavelength demarcating the two regimes shifts to shorter wavelengths.
