Webinar: Defining Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detector Performance

Webinar Topic: Quantum Sensing When light is detected at single-photon level, how do you measure detector performance? This is even more important when detectors can approach 100% quantum efficiency, which is the case for Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detection (SNSPD). In this webinar, Félix Bussières, VP Research & Technology at ID Quantique, will address the main … Continue reading
