Abstract

We propose to operate a superconducting transition edge sensor (TES) using a different type of biasing, in which the resistance of the TES is kept constant by means of feedback on the bias voltage and is independent of the incoming signal power. By combining a large negative electrothermal feedback with a load independent resistance, this approach can significantly linearise the response of the detector in the large signal limit. The electrothermal feedback is enhanced in comparison with the commonly applied voltage biasing, which further increases the speed of the detector. Furthermore, in frequency domain multiplexed readout, the sinusoidal bias voltages for each TES can be generated cryogenically with the readout SQUIDs.
