The realization of large-scale photonic circuit for quantum optics experiments at telecom wavelengths requires an increasing number of integrated detectors. Superconductive nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPDs) can be easily integrated on chip and they can efficiently detect the light propagating inside waveguides. The thermal budget of cryostats poses a limit on the maximum number of elements that can be integrated on the same chip due to the thermal impact of the readout electronics. In this paper, we propose and implement a novel scheme able for an efficient reading of several SNSPDs with only one readout port, enabling the realization of photonic circuits with a large number of modes.

We investigate the transition from the photon-counting to the linear operation mode in a large-dynamic range photon-number-resolving-detector (PNRD). A 24-pixel photon-number-resolving-detector, based on superconducting nanowires in a series configuration, has been fabricated and characterized. The voltage pulses, generated by the pixels, are summed up into a single readout pulse whose height is proportional to the detected photon number. The device can resolve up to twenty-five distinct output levels corresponding to the detection of n = 0-24 photons. Due to its large dynamic range, high sensitivity, high speed and wide wavelength range, this device has potential for linear detection in the few tens of photons range. We show its application in the detection of analog optical signals at frequencies up to few hundred MHz and investigate the limits related to the finite number of pixels and to the pixel's dead time.
