Single-photon detector

  • Quantum efficiency – at least 10% (custom value, up to 20% in increments of 2.5%).
  • The probability of a dark counts is 5 · 10-7 (with a quantum efficiency of 10% and a gating pulse duration of 1 ns).
  • Maximum trigger pulse repetition rate is 300 MHz.

Overview
Single-photon detectors are designed to detect the quanta of optical radiation in the near infrared range. They have low noise characteristics, sufficient for most applications, efficiency and performance combined with compact size and low cost.
Applications
The single-photon detector is used in the following areas:
  • Quantum cryptography.
  • Experimental quantum optics - the study of bound (entangled) states.
  • Spectroscopy.
  • Photoluminescence.
  • Laser location - LIDAR / LADAR.
