Abstract: Superconducting NbN microstrip counters feature radiation hardnesstwo orders of magnitude higher than conventional Si strip detectors, spatialresolution limited only by lithographic techniques 0.1 - 2 microns), intrinsicsignal rise time of 2 ps, and signal transport over large distances withoutlosses. The aim of this proposal is to improve understanding of the physicsof such detectors and to establish their large- scale feasibility.
