Welcome to Quantum Sensing News:
The latest Quantum Sensing and Single-Photon Systems updates brought to you by ID Quantique.

We invite you to join us for an upcoming webinar on November 9th, presented by Prof. Hugo Zbinden, exploring the development of the detector technology that has allowed quantum communication to leave the lab and reach the world of practical QKD.

Detecting single photons seems hard. Not because they are strange wonders of quantum mechanics, but because there are simply too many of them. In our latest application note, we present the technology that allows you to measure photons faster than ever before.

Related to this work, IDQ will be presenting at the Quantum Information and Measurement VI (QIM) conference, online from 1-5 November. Lorenzo Stasi will be giving a talk on high-efficiency and fast photon-number-resolving SNSPD, and we hope to see you there!

In other news, as part of our ongoing commitment to quality, we are happy to announce a substantial step-up in performance for existing ID Qube NIR users, without the need to purchase a new device. Contact us to schedule your next maintenance check-in.

Finally, in case you missed our recent webinar, presented by Félix Bussières, Ph.D., we have shared an on-demand version on our website for you to view at your leisure.

Enjoy the reading and stay healthy!

Single-Photon Detectors for long-haul Quantum Communication

In this online event, Hugo Zbinden (Leader of the Quantum Technologies Group at the University of Geneva, and co-founder of ID Quantique) explores the development of the detector technology that allowed quantum communication to leave the lab and enter the world of practical QKD applications towards the future of long-haul quantum networks.


Application note: High-speed superconducting detectors

Parallel-pixel detectors let you go beyond the speed limit set by the photon pile-up effect. In this application note, we explore how such a design is allowing IDQ’s ID281 SNSPDs to detect single photons faster than ever before.


Efficiency gains for the ID Qube NIR

Good news about the ID Qube NIR product range. Your Qube detectors, including models you have already received, can now be calibrated to reach higher detection efficiencies, up to 35% from 20% today—a substantial step-up in performance without the need to purchase a new device.


QIM Event

Join us at the 2021 Quantum Information and Measurement VI (QIM). This online conference covers the latest in theoretical developments and experimental implementations of quantum information technology, and we are happy to be invited as speakers.


Expanding Quantum Frontiers with Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detectors

In case you missed it, Félix Bussières of ID Quantique recently delivered a webinar on superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors, their key scientific applications and the emerging technologies they enable. You can watch it on demand now!
