Welcome to Quantum Sensing News:
The latest Quantum Sensing and Single-Photon Systems updates brought to you by ID Quantique.
In recent news, researchers at the ICFO Institute of Photonic Sciences have successfully demonstrated entanglement of remote quantum memories and, for the first time, entanglement between a telecom-wavelength photon and an on-demand multimode quantum memory, laying the groundwork for a future broadband quantum repeater.
Preparations for the launch of the Ariane 6 rocket also reached a key milestone, with an early combined test campaign conducted on the rocket’s firing. This is the first major operational qualification of the launch system parts and launch base infrastructure, bringing the Ariane 6 a step closer to the launch pad.
Quantum science is measuring ever-smaller gaps in time, energy, and space, bringing us closer to the fabric of reality itself. In our next webinar, Félix Bussières, Ph.D., of ID Quantique explores the technology of superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors and their key scientific applications.
Join us for this year’s QCrypt event, the 11th edition of the yearly international scientific conference presenting last year’s top results in quantum cryptography. IDQ is sponsoring the event this year again.
You can now watch the product showcase for our new ID 3000 Series. These compact, easy to use and versatile picosecond-pulsed sources of telecom-band, NIR, visible and UV laser photons, offer a cost-effective solution for high-quality picosecond-pulsed laser light under long-term and maintenance-free operation.
Enjoy the reading and stay healthy!

ICFO INSTITUTE OF PHOTONIC SCIENCES ACHIEVE NEW MILESTONE WITH IDQ’S SNSPDS
Researchers at the ICFO Institute of Photonic Sciences have achieved an important milestone towards extending future quantum communication channels.
The ability to distribute entanglement across a quantum network is of paramount importance in a future-proof quantum internet. In building quantum communication channels, this kind of entanglement distribution would extend the channels’ range through quantum repeater technology.
COUNTING DOWN TO THE ARIANE 6 LAUNCH
Preparations for the new Ariane 6 launch vehicle proceed smoothly, in anticipation of its maiden voyage in 2022. Watch the mesmerizing video from the Ariane 6 launch base in French Guiana.
