Description

With its unique band structure endowing it with wideband absorption and exceptionally low heat capacity, graphene is an ideal candidate for the study of single photon detection from the near-infrared regime all the way to the microwave regime. Here we present 1) modeled results demonstrating the promise of the graphene-based Josephon junction (GJJ) as a wideband single photon detector, 2) experimental results demonstrating a GJJ bolometer detecting microwave radiation with few-photon sensitivity, and 3) experimental results demonstrating the ability to switch a GJJ from superconducting to resistive with single near-infrared photons.
