Superconducting transition edge sensors (TES) have made dramatic progress since their invention some 65 years ago [1,2] until now there are major imaging arrays of TESs with as many as 7588 separate sensors. These are extensively used by astronomers for some ground-breaking observations [3]. The great success of TES systems has tended to overshadow other superconducting sensor developments. However there are other types [4,5] which are discussed in papers within this special edition of the journal. Here we describe a quite different type of detector, also applicable to single photon detection but possessing possible advantages (higher sensitivity, higher operating temperature) than the conventional TES, at least for single detectors.
