Waveguide-integrated superconducting-nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPDs) are a highly promising detector technology to enable complex integrated quantum photonic experiments. While SNSPDs offer very attractive performance characteristics, current material systems only achieve limited fabrication yield, thus preventing large-scale implementations.

Here we show that waveguide-integrated SNSPDs can be realized from amorphous superconducting thin films, which promise highly reproducible nanowire fabrication because of their inherent insensitivity to the substrate material. We develop a multi-layer lithography process for patterning molybdenum silicide nanowires in travelling-wave geometry on silicon-nitride waveguides. The resulting detectors show a saturated on-chip detection efficiency of 73 % for 1550 nm wavelength photons at a temperature of 2.1 K. We further find a reset time below 5 ns allowing for high detection rates in the range of several hundred MHz. Our results pave the way for in-depth studies of fabrication yield and performance of amorphous SNSPDs integrated in large numbers on a wide range of photonic platforms.
