Abstract

The dark-count rate (DCR) is a key parameter of single-photon detectors. By introducing a bulk optical band-pass filter mounted on a fiber-to-fiber optical bench cooled at 3 K and blocking down to 5 μm, we suppressed the DCR of a superconducting nanowire single-photon detector by more than three orders of magnitude. The DCR is limited by the blackbody radiation through a signal passband of 20-nm bandwidth. The figure of merit, system detection efficiency, and DCR were 2.7×1011, 2.3%, and 103Hz, respectively. Narrowing the bandwidth to 100 GHz suppresses the DCR to 104Hz, and the figure of merit increases to 1.8×1012.

Fig. 2. Transmission spectra of DWDM filter in series with bulk filters mounted on a fiber-to-fiber bench at room temperature (black dots) and at 3 K (red line) using a standard optical spectrum analyzer.
Fig. 3.
Fig. 3. Bias current dependence of system detection efficiency ( η ) without filters (green triangles), with band-pass filter mounted on a fiber-to-fiber bench at 3 K (blue squares), and with both band-pass filter and DWDM cold filter (red circles).
Fig. 4.
Fig. 4. Bias current dependence of system DCR without filters (green triangles), with band-pass filter mounted on a fiber-to-fiber bench at 3 K (blue squares), with both band-pass filter and DWDM cold filter (red circles), and without connecting fiber, indicating intrinsic DCR (black diamonds). Thin blue line is the calculated DCR due to the blackbody radiation passing through the band-pass filter with 20-nm bandwidth; thin red dotted line is the calculated DCR due to the blackbody radiation passing through both the band-pass filter and DWDM filter with 100-GHz bandwidth.
Fig. 5.
Fig. 5. Bias current dependence of the timing jitter ( Δ t ) without filters (green triangles), with the cold band-pass filter (blue squares), and with both the cold band-pass filter and cold DWDM filter (red circles).
Fig. 6.
Fig. 6. Bias current dependence of the figure of merit [ η / ( DCR Δ t ) ] without filters (green triangles), with the cold band-pass filter (blue squares), and with both the cold band-pass filter and cold DWDM filter (red circles).
