Expert Reviews

Dr. Myron Rubenstein, Ph.D (Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy)

Niobium nitride nanopowder is mainly used as a superconductor. Detectors based on it can detect a single photon in the 1-10 micrometer section of the infrared spectrum, which is important for astronomy and telecommunications. It can detect changes up to 25 gigahertz. Niobium nitride is also used in absorbing anti-reflective coatings.

Dr. Huojin Chan,  (University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, Anhui, China)

Niobium nitride nanopowder (NbN) coatings have many interesting properties such as chemical inertness, excellent mechanical properties, high electrical conductivity, high melting point, and a superconducting transition temperature between 16 and 17 K. For this reason, these compounds have many potential thin-film applications.

Dr. Ms. Yi Yen Shi,  (King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi,Bangkok, Thailand)

The different phases of niobium nitride exhibit unique properties which make it a very promising candidate for many applications. For instance, Niobium nitride nanopowder possesses high hardness, a high melting point, and superconducting properties. Most of the niobium nitride phase show superconducting properties in the range of 9-17 K depending on their crystal structure.

Dr. Bruce Perrault, Ph.D (Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), USA)

Niobium nitride nanopowder is the best choice for fabricating efficient superconducting single-photon detectors for the visible and near-infrared spectrum. Since these detectors have an excellent time resolution and a high signal-to-noise ratio, their application ranges from low photon flux astronomy to quantum cryptography and quantum information processing.

Dr. Hans Roelofs, Ph.D (National Technical University of Athens, Greece)

Niobium (Nb) is the most commonly used material in superconducting electronics [1-3], but several groups have been investigating the properties of metals and alloys that could represent an alternative to it. Niobium nitride, in particular, is a promising material in this respect given its relatively high critical temperature and energy gap of the order, respectively, of 16 K and 2.5 mV. The transition temperature is appealing because of the progress achieved in closed-cycle refrigeration, while the value of the gap is stimulating for engineering devices in the terahertz range.
