1 October 1990 Infrared response of YBa2Cu3O7-delta films to pulsed broadband synchrotron radiation

We report studies of a thin high-Ta film operating as a fast bolometric detector of infrared radiation. The film has a response of several mV when exposed to a 1 W, 1 ns duration broadband infrared pulse. The decay after the pulse was about 4 ns. The temperature dependence of the response accurately tracked dR/dT. A thermal model, in which the film's temperature varies relative to the substrate, provides a good description of the response. We find no evidence for other (non-bolometric) response mechanisms for temperatures near or well below T.
