Single Photon Systems December 2018

Welcome to the latest edition of Single-Photon Systems News; brought to you by IDQ, the world leader in quantum photonics.

This month we are pleased to announce that Dr. Marc Nikles has joined the team at IDQ as Senior VP Single-Photon Systems, bringing over 25 years’ experience in the sensing industry.

We then see how a collaboration between The Quantum Technologies Group at the University of Geneva, ID Quantique and Corning Incorporated has extended the maximum range of quantum key distribution (QKD) over optical fibre to a landmark 421 km.

Next we look at how IDQ’s Andy Strong is taking quantum sensors out of the lab and into the real world, accelerating the process of bringing sensor solutions based on single-photon detectors (SPADs) to end-user markets.

We are also proud to announce that we have been recognised as a SINET 16 Innovator for our work in securing long-lived ‘Life Critical’ IoT devices using quantum random number generation.

Finally we would like to invite you to SPIE Photonics West, which will take place in San Francisco from 02-07 February 2019. We will be exhibiting, so come and discover our new Time Controller!

Best regards,

Grégoire Ribordy

421 km QKD record

Quantum Key Distribution achieved over record 421 km

A collaboration between the University of Geneva, ID Quantique and Corning Incorporated has yielded a successful test of Quantum Key Distribution over a new record of 421 km.

Since its first experimental demonstration over 32 cm on an optical table, researchers have been pushing the boundaries of QKD over optical fiber. In a recent experiment, Alberto Boaron et al – backed by The Quantum Technologies Group at the University of Geneva, ID Quantique and Corning Incorporated – have extended the technology’s maximum range to 421 km.

Taking Quantum Sensors out of the lab and into the real world

ID Quantique’s Andy Strong looks to accelerate the process of bringing sensor solutions based on single-photon detectors (SPADs) to end-user markets.

Many clients will know Andy Strong who joined ID Quantique (UK) in May of this year. His primary role is to set up collaborative projects with UK Universities and end-users to accelerate the process of bringing sensor solutions based on single-photon detectors (SPADs) to end-user markets.

ID Quantique named SINET 16 Innovator

ID Quantique named SINET 16 Innovator

SINET 16, hosted in Washington D.C. in November, saw us being recognised as an ‘Innovator’ for our work in securing long-lived ‘Life Critical’ IoT devices using quantum random number generation.

Each year, SINET evaluates the technologies and products of hundreds of cybersecurity organisations from across the globe before selecting the 16 most innovative to present their solutions. We are proud to be recognised for our continuing efforts to secure IoT devices against the threats posed in today’s threat landscape and, more importantly, tomorrow’s post-quantum environment.
