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

Redefining Single-Photon Detection Technology

Photonis single-photon-detection solutions are based on vacuum-tube detector technology. This technology combines high detection efficiency (QE) with an extremely low amount of dark counts (dark noise). After pulsing, the phenomenon in which a detector generates a pulse after it already has detected a photon is minimal, and dead time is non-existent. Photonis’s patented high-end microchannel … 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
