The Physics Department is seeking a four-channel single photon detection system necessary for experiments generating and storing single photons for quantum information applications. The detectors must exhibit high detection efficiency in two wavelength bands in the near infrared and telecommunications ranges. This is in order to support multiple projects in both ranges, and one project that will convert light between the two bands. Single photon detection in these wavelength ranges can be achieved so as to meet the specifications listed below via superconducting nanowire devices.
