Abstract

All-niobium thin-film nanobridges were fabricated with bridge sizes of 40-nm length, 50-nm width, and 100-nm thickness. We investigated the performance of the nanobridges by monitoring Shapiro steps induced on the current-voltage curves by an optically pumped far-infrared laser. These steps have been observed up to 693 GHz (433 μm). This is a twofold increase over that previously reported on thin-film nanobridges.
