Antenna-coupled high-Tc bolometers fabricated from YBa2Cu3O7-δ thin films have been prepared using molecular organic dyes. Light-harvesting layers derived from these visible and near-infrared absorbers have been utilized to produce detectors which exhibit wavelength-selective response characteristics in the visible and near-infrared spectral regions. Using such hybrid structures, initial studies documenting efficient energy transfer between molecular dye layers and superconductor surfaces have been completed.
