Superconducting tunnel junctions in use for X-ray detection ale expected to produce an excellent energy resolution. An inclusive model is employed to give an overview of the detector characteristics. This method is devised to implicitly take properties of superconductor materials into account. With introducing an empirical relationship between junction parameters, the detector characteristics such as signal magnitude and energy resolution are reproduced to an acceptable degree. This method gives a helpful suggestion for understanding the detector performance such as a Fano-like factor, and may also serve as a guide line for designing tunnel junctions.
