Welcome to Quantum Sensing News: The latest Quantum Sensing and Single-Photon Systems updates brought to you by ID Quantique.
First, we have a new paper for the ID281 on recent work realised in collaboration with the Group of Applied Physics at the University of Geneva. The new publication Direct measurement of the recovery time of superconducting nanowire SPD is now available to download.
Next, we invite you to join us for our latest webinar; NIR Fluorescence Lifetime Spectroscopy for Nano-Materials Characterisation and Biology which takes place on 22nd September. You can also review our other replay webinars here.
Finally, don’t forget to join us at the Quantum 2.0 Online Conference. This OSA event takes place from 14th-17 September and features a presentation from our CEO, Gregoire Ribordy. We also encourage you to visit us on our virtual booth.
Enjoy the reading and stay healthy!
Direct measurement of the recovery time of superconducting nanowire single photon detectors
This paper introduces a fast and simple method to characterize precisely the recovery time of SNSPDs. It provides full information about the recovery of the efficiency as a function of time for a single or several consecutive detections.
This method, developed in collaboration with the Group of Applied Physics of the University of Geneva, is used by IDQ to test and qualify its commercially available SNSPDs. The result is clear and transparent information about the recovery time dynamics of the IDQ detectors, taking into account the operating conditions. With this information, end-users gain insight on the ultimate performance of their application in terms of bandwidth or detection rates.
Webinar: NIR fluorescence lifetime spectroscopy for nano-materials characterization and biology
September 22 2020, 4:00PM- 4:45PM CEST.
Discover more about a method at the heart of many applications: time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) and how it is used in near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence lifetime spectroscopy (FLS).
OSA Quantum 2.0 Online Conference
Join us at Quantum 2.0 between 14th-17th September 2020
Quantum 2.0 is a new OSA conference focusing on the development and use of quantum superposition, entanglement and measurement to advance science and technology. Visit our virtual booth and join Gregoire Ribordy for his session on 15th September: Quantum technologies for Long-Term Data Security.
