Description

We present the status of the development of Superconducting Tunnel Junction (STJ) detector with the cryogenic preamplifier as a far-infrared single photon detector for the COsmic BAckground Neutrino Decay search (COBAND) experiment. The photon energy spectrum from the radiative decay of cosmic background neutrino is expected to have a sharp cutoff at high energy end in a far-infrared region ranging from 15meV to 30meV. The detector is required to measure an individual photon energy with a sufficient energy resolution less than 2% for identifying the cutoff structure, and to be designed for a rocket or satellite experiment. We develop a diffraction grating and an array of Nb/Al-STJ pixels, where each pixel can detect a single far-infrared photon delivered by the grating according to its wavelength. An amplifier is required to have a level of 10 electron equivalent-noise for the Nb/Al-STJ. To achieve high signal-to-noise ratio of the STJ, we use a preamplifier made with the Silicon on Insulator (SOI) technique that can be operated at low temperature around 0.3K. We have developed the Nb/Al-STJ with the SOI cryogenic preamplifier and have tested the detector performance around 0.3K. The present status of this STJ detector development is reported in details.
