A Miniaturized 4 K Platform for Superconducting Infrared Photon Counting Detectors
Detecting single quanta of light single-photons is extremely challenging, requiring detectors with exquisite sensitivity. Single-photon detectors based on superconducting nanowires have emerged as the gold standard for infrared photon counting, enabling ground-breaking studies in quantum optics, space-to-ground communication and long range remote sensing. These sought-after devices operate just a few degrees above absolute zero; such low temperatures are challenging to achieve outside of the research laboratory.
EUCAS 2017 Impressions
The 13th European Conference on Applied Superconductivity (EUCAS 2017) took place this year in Switzerland, in the great and very international town of Geneva known for its great international organizations, like the United Nations and CERN.
