ID Quantique Receives 2020 Laser Focus World Innovators Award
ID Quantique’s newest Near Infrared (NIR) single-photon detector, the ID Qube, gets the highest level of recognition by Laser Focus World Innovators Awards program. Complex measurements made easy: the ID Qube is a series of modular and versatile NIR detectors, simple to set up and use, featuring unrivalled detection performance in a very compact format to achieve time resolved single-photon detection.
ID Quantique, the world leader in Quantum-Safe security and Single-Photon Systems announced today that its newest single photon detector, of a size of a Rubik’s cube, the ID Qube Series was recognized among the best by the 2020 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards. An esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the optics and photonics community recognized ID Quantique as a Gold honoree.
The ID Qube Series is a comprehensive range of modular and versatile single-photon detectors designed to meet the requirements of photon counting applications, such as quantum communications & Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), LiDAR, Fluorescence lifetime measurements, dynamic light scattering and many more. The ID Qube Series of detectors are plug-and-play, ultra-low noise and compact modules, designed to offer operation in both synchronous and asynchronous modes, and to work with IDQ’s ID900 Time Controller picosecond timing electronics and software.
Key benefits of the ID Qube:
- Compact design
- Integrated photon counting capabilities
- Ultra-low dark count rate
- Dedicated software to control and monitor up to 8 ID Qube detectors
- Versatile – Free-running & gated modes (fast and/or slow gating)
- Free-space & fiber-coupled (SMF/MMF) options
John Lewis, Editor-in-Chief of “Laser Focus World” stated: “On behalf of the Laser Focus World Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate ID Quantique on their Gold–level honoree status. This competitive program allows Laser Focus World to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products impacting the photonics community this year.”
