ID Quantique Offers Quantum Sensing Webinars
ID Quantique presents a new series of quantum sensing webinars based on “the quest for the perfect detector – single-photon detection solutions and applications”.
Since Albert Einstein discovered the photon in 1905, the quantum nature of light has revolutionised how ultra-sensitive detectors could be imagined. This started a quest for the perfect detector that has been taking place throughout the 20th century, and still goes on today.
From the progress in solid-state technologies to the more recent introduction of superconducting nanowires, photon-counting detectors are asymptotically trending towards the performance of the perfect detector, characterised by:
- Detection Efficiency = 1
- Dark Count rate (False Detections) = 0
- Ultra-high timing precision
- No dead time after a detection
ID Quantique has pioneered near infrared single-photon detection by introducing the first commercially available InGaAs-based, single-photon detectors back in 2002.
Since then, ID Quantique has largely expanded its product range of detectors and photon counting solutions to offer a large variety of solutions for many applications ranging from QKD to biosensing and LiDAR. They continue to improve their superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPD) as a commitment to their quest for the perfect detector.
Join their new series of webinars on recent developments in single-photon detection. See how close you can get to the perfect detector.
Webinar 1: Mastering photonics at the single-photon level
Date: April 15, 2020, 4pm CEST
Interested to learn more about how to achieve single-photon detection and counting with picosecond timing resolution?
In this webinar presented by Félix Bussières, VP Research & Technology at ID Quantique, you will learn how to use and boost your application with single-photon detection to, for instance:
- Perform QKD over hundreds of kilometers of optical fiber
- Scale up photonic entanglement generation
- Perform high-resolution fluorescence measurement
- And more
A review of ID Quantique single-photon detection and timing systems will be presented, from the ID Qube based on avalanche photodiode operated in Geiger mode, to high-performance ID281 superconducting nanowires, both in combination with the ID900 picosecond timing electronics.
Webinar 2: Defining Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detector (SNSPD) performance
Date: April 30 2020, 4pm CEST
Interested to learn more about Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detector (SNSPD) performance and detector selection criteria based on specific application requirements?
This webinar will focus on the presentation of ID Quantique ID281 superconducting nanowire single-photon detection (SNSPD) system and solutions. Félix Bussières, VP Research & Technology at ID Quantique, will present the main features of ID Quantique’s closed-cycle cryogenic systems and detectors.
He will explain:
- How ID Quantique thoroughly characterizes its detectors and why this is important for your science and the enhancement of your experimental results
- How you can tailor the technology to achieve specific performance criteria in relation with your application needs.
