We briefly review a simple model of superconducting-normal phaseseparation in transition-edge sensors (TESs) in the SuperCDMS experiment. After discussing some design considerations relevant to the TESs in the experiment, we study noise sources in both the phase-separated and phase-uniform cases. Such simulations will be valuable for optimizing the critical temperature and TES length of future SuperCDMS detectors.
