Abstract

We examine the application of Josephson radiation emitters to spectral calibration of single-photon-resolving detectors. Josephson junctions are patterned in a YBCO film on a bicrystal sapphire substrate and are voltage controlled to generate radiation in the frequency range of 0.05-1 THz. The detector used in this work consists of a gate-defined quantum-dot photon-to-charge transducer coupled to a single-electron transistor. Both the emitter and the detector are equipped with a matching on-chip wide-band antenna. The combination of a tuneable emitter and detector allows us to determine the efficacy of the YBCO emitter and also to analyze the elementary processes involved in the detection.
