We present our achievements in the development of superconducting strip-line detectors (SSLDs) with parallel configuration for application in time-of-flight mass spectrometry. We have fabricated 2×2 mm2 SSLDs by electron beam nano-lithography. In spite of the large area, the detector has a fast time response. To our knowledge our device is the largest cryogenic detector for macromolecules with nanosecond temporal response. Based on the obtained results, our simulations show that the presented parallel SSLD design should be able to cover an area of 4×2 mm2 while keeping the signal pulse risetime below 1 ns.

Abstract

We present our achievements in the development of superconducting strip-line detectors (SSLDs) with parallel configuration for application in time-of-flight mass spectrometry. We have fabricated 2×2 mm2 SSLDs by electron beam nano-lithography. In spite of the large area, the detector has a fast time response. To our knowledge our device is the largest cryogenic detector for macromolecules with nanosecond temporal response. Based on the obtained results, our simulations show that the presented parallel SSLD design should be able to cover an area of 4×2 mm2 while keeping the signal pulse risetime below 1 ns.
