The very best in single-photon detection, with ultra-stable performance
Push the limits of your photonic experiments and applications to new heights with our Swiss-made superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs), combining incredibly high detection efficiency, timing precision, low noise and fast recovery time.
In a single ID281 system, mix and match up to 16 detectors, available in a range of specifications customizable to each user, including our Standard (single-pixel), Ultrafast (parallel-pixel) and Photon-Number-Resolving/PNR (parallel-pixel) options.
For added convenience and mobility, the full ID281 system is also available in a range of self-contained rack-mounted solutions.
Every ID281 SNSPD has a high system detection efficiency (SDE) across hundreds of nanometres, centred on a user-selected wavelength from <635 nm to >2000 nm.
For even broader wavelength ranges, custom optical cavities can be designed and detectors can be coupled to multimode fibre on request.
With built-in cryogenic amplifiers, the detector timing jitter is < 50 ps FWHM for all Standard SNSPDs, and can reach as low as < 30 ps.
All single-photon detectors have a finite time in which they need to “reset” after a detection event.
Detector dark counts are always low, decrease at shorter wavelengths, dominated by black-body radiation.
