Development of NbN-based superconducting single photon detectors on silicon platform

25 January 2022 • 12:20 PM - 12:40 PM PST | Room 305 (Level 3 South)

Abstract

Quantum information processing brings new protocols to the field of communications, by ensuring absolute security of information transfer thanks to the laws of quantum physics. Furthermore, in the field of computing, quantum processing offers the perspective of performing massively parallel calculations, orders of magnitude faster than with a classical computer. For these two applications, excellent detectors are required with ultimate performances. Superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPDs) are the best candidate, as they can reach near-unity detection efficiency. We are developing on-chip waveguide integrated SNSPDs on 200 mm SOI wafers, addressing both the material, architecture design and fabrication process challenges.
