ID Quantique Launches ID Qube Series of Single-Photon Detectors
ID Quantique (IDQ) has launched the ID Qube Series, a compact and cost-effective series of modules for single-photon detection at telecom wavelengths. Modular and versatile, the ID Qube series is therefore a comprehensive range of detectors designed to meet the requirements of photon counting applications. Some of these applications include quantum communications & Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), LiDAR, fluorescence lifetime measurements and dynamic light scattering. IDQ has developed plug-and-play, ultra-low noise and compact modules for single-photon detection applications, available either in free-running or gated mode for either asynchronous or synchronous single-photon detection.
ID Qube NIR Free-Running
The ID Qube NIR Free-Running brings a major breakthrough for single-photon detection in free-running mode at telecom wavelengths. It provides a cost-effective solution for applications in which asynchronous photon detection is essential, such as photon correlation or time of flight measurements. Moreover, it is especially suited for applications such as LiDAR, where compactness is strongly required. This detector offers a gate input port connector dedicated to avoid saturation or undesired detections. The cooled InGaAs/InP avalanche photodiode and associated electronics can achieve low dark count and afterpulsing rates.
ID Qube NIR Gated
The ID Qube NIR Gated is a fast-gated single photon detector optimized for telecom wavelengths. It provides a cost-effective solution for applications in which synchronous photon detection is essential such as quantum communications especially Quantum Key Distribution. It is also well suited for LiDAR because of its compactness. This detector offers a gate input designed to avoid saturation or undesired detections and can also operate in Free-Running mode. The cooled InGaAs/InP avalanche photodiode and associated electronics have the ability to achieve low dark count and afterpulsing rates for fast gated operations.
Key benefits of the ID Qube:
- Compact design
- Integrated photon counting capabilities
- Ultra-low dark count
- Low jitter
- Free-running & gated modes (fast or slow gating)
- Free-space & fiber-coupled (SMF/MMF) options
