FIG. 1.

(a) Schematic of the setup and (colored) scanning electron microscope picture of the NbSi SSPD. The box represents the cryostat with an optical fiber feedthrough. A NbTiN and a NbSi detector are mounted besides each other such that both detectors are illuminated equally. (b) QE of the NbSi detector for . (Inset) Typical detection pulse after amplification. (c) Measured optical constants of NbSi.

FIG. 2.

(a) Count rates and QE for the NbTiN (circles) and NbSi (squares) detector. The solid lines through the QE measurements are exponential fits. (b) NbSi count rate as a function of NbTiN count rate for and at different powers. The slope in the exponential plot is 0.95(0.27) and 0.91(0.16), for and respectively, close to linear.
