Influence of Nitrogen Concentration on Electrical and Physical Properties of Disoredered NbN Films
Applied Physics
(Master’s programme)

2018
Single-photon detectors based on NbN films are very popular in various fields. SSPDs are a key technology for various applications, such as quantum key distribution, free-space laser communication, and detection and detection of distance by light. It is important to improve the performance of single-photon detectors. To improve the performance of the SSPD detector, depending on the nitrogen concentration in the superconducting NbN film, to further improve the detector performance. The paper presents the results of measurements and calculations of such electrophysical properties of SSPD as: critical temperature of superconducting transition, surface resistance, critical current of superconducting transition at 4.2 K, critical current density at 4.2 K.

Student Theses at HSE must be completed in accordance with the University Rules and regulations specified by each educational programme.

Summaries of all theses must be published and made freely available on the HSE website.

The full text of a thesis can be published in open access on the HSE website only if the authoring student (copyright holder) agrees, or, if the thesis was written by a team of students, if all the co-authors (copyright holders) agree. After a thesis is published on the HSE website, it obtains the status of an online publication.
