Single-photon detection and the future of quantum networks and computing

Single-photon detection and the future of quantum networks and computing on demand

  Broadcasted on Thursday 25th April at 4pm CET

About this webinar

We first explore the role of single-photon detectors in advancing quantum technologies, with a focus on superconducting nanowire detectors (SNSPDs) and the benefits they offer for quantum computing and high-speed quantum communication.

After which, we discuss the evolving needs of the field and describe IDQ’s user-focused detector solutions, including our innovative photon-number-resolving (PNR) SNSPDs and our new rack-mountable SNSPD system. We will show real-world experiments that have already benefited from the outstanding performances of our detectors, including an enhanced heralded single-photon source and high key-rate QKD implementation.

Finally, we conclude with our vision on the future of single-photon detection for quantum information and networking, and the exciting possibilities this can unlock.
