Fast, High-Efficiency PNR Parallel SNSPD

The results of new research from a collaboration between ID Quantique and GAP at the University of Geneva has been recently published in Physical Review Applied. This paper, titled “Fast High-Efficiency Photon-Number-Resolving Parallel Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detector” shows a high-performance SNSPD, based on a novel parallel design enabling fast, high-efficiency photon-number resolution (PNR). The paper … Continue reading

Two Approaches to PNR and Ultrafast Detection with SNSPDs

Photon-number-resolving (PNR) and high speed detection of single photons are important for many applications in quantum information science. These include linear optical quantum computing, Gaussian boson sampling, improved heralded single-photon sources, quantum key distribution, and quantum network protocols based on quantum repeaters. In this short video Félix Bussières, VP Research and Technology at ID Quantique … Continue reading
