We propose a scheme for characterizing a photodetector by directly reconstructing the Wigner functions of the detector’s Positive-Operator-Valued Measure (POVM) elements, using displaced thermal mixtures as probes. We report our experimental progress on characterizing a superconducting transition-edge sensor.
