The very best in single-photon detection
Complete turn-key systems, empowering you to create the building blocks of tomorrow’s quantum internet
Our superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) represent the very best in single-photon detection. Yet IDQ’s SNSPD journey is just beginning.
IDQ’s mission is to empower your work in emerging photonic technologies and quantum applications; from QKD and quantum communication, quantum optics for quantum computation, hyper-resolved microscopy for biology and medicine, to ultra-precise metrology and manufacturing.
Researchers and developers around the world are already finding out that SNSPDs are making the impossible possible; helping us all reach the goal of tomorrow’s quantum internet. Aided by our existing range of ID281 SNSPDs – already boasting near-perfect detection efficiency, timing precision, ultra-low noise and fast recovery time – you can push your photonic experiments to the limit.
ID281 SNSPDs are Swiss-made single-photon detectors, featuring best-in-class detection efficiency, timing jitter, noise and recovery speed. Mix and match up to 16 SNSPDs in one automated closedcycle cryostat, providing ease-of-use and unrivalled device performance for long-term multi-year operation.
Two models of cryogenic system house ID281 Series SNSPDs:
the ID281 SO (SOrption) system, and the ID281 CO (Continuous
The ID281 SO system achieves the highest SNSPD performance, with longer periods between system maintenance and an overall longer system lifetime.
The ID281 CO system achieves true uninterrupted and indefinite SNSPD operation, while still benefiting from excellent ID281 SNSPD performance.
ID281 SNSPDs are delivered in turnkey detection systems, tailored to your needs. Options and accessories for the ID281 SNSPD system include:
Every user’s needs are unique, and the breadth and performance of our SNSPDs means that every system is tailored especially to you.
Your ID281 Series journey begins in complementary and non-binding consultation with our expert team—to define the detection solution that is right for you—and continues with a smooth and fast delivery, installation and user training, followed by always-available ongoing support.
