Abstract

We report the first demonstration of X-ray detection by using a Superconducting Tunnel Junction (STJ) with a microstrip-coil. The STJ was fabricated based on Nb/Al/AlOx/Nb integration process technology using a 2μm design rule. Magnetic field was applied into the STJ by the microstrip-coil to suppress the dc Josephson current instead of the conventional electromagnet. The output waveform was successfully observed by irradiation of 5.9 keV X-ray under a condition of microstrip-coil current of 20 mA at 0.4 K.
