Webinar Replay: Expanding Quantum Frontiers with Superconducting Single-Photon Detectors
Quantum science is measuring ever-smaller gaps in time, energy, and space, bringing us closer to the fabric of reality itself. In this on demand webinar, Félix Bussières, Ph.D., of ID Quantique explores the technology of superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors — optical detectors with incredible efficiency and speed across the visible, IR, and fiber-telecom wavelengths — as well as the key scientific applications and emerging technologies they enable, and the benefits therein.
He also discusses the outlook for the quantum technology field: using ultraprecise and sensitive single-photon-counting solutions to enable the expanding horizon of scientific discovery, driving the next generation of high-tech innovation in the process. Join the technological innovation revolution as we move a step closer to scalable quantum computing and simulation and a realizable quantum internet.
Who should watch:
This webinar is for anyone with an interest in quantum optics or quantum information theory, as well as research scientists and engineers engaged in high-sensitivity photonic technologies, both in industry and academia.
About the presenter:
Félix Bussières, Ph.D, is vice president of research and technology at ID Quantique. He and his team are responsible for the development of IDQ’s core technologies and for key innovative projects. Bussières obtained his Ph.D. in physics from the Université de Montréal. He then worked as a senior researcher at the University of Geneva, where he conducted research in quantum technologies. In particular, he played a key role in developing high-performance superconducting detectors. After joining IDQ in 2016, he took the superconducting detector technology from a prototype to a successful product line for research laboratories, as well as a partnership with ArianeGroup to develop cutting-edge equipment dedicated to the upcoming Ariane 6 commercial space launcher. He now leads several innovation activities related to the development of single-photon detectors, quantum random number generators, and quantum key distribution.
