The CU Boulder/NIST <Q|School: Introduction to Single Photonics and Quantum Radiometry Short Course: Sources, Detectors and Measurements
The course site is now live! This course is sponsored by QED-C and is a direct result of the QED-C single photon workshop held in September 2021 and the subsequent report released in July 2022. Register Today!
Who should attend
- Technologists looking for an introduction to a new field and networking
- Experienced engineers or technicians in a related field looking for an introduction
- Researchers seeking a better understanding of and expressing measurement results
Topics (full list) :
- PMTs, SPADs, SNSPDs, TESs (if you don’t know the acronyms, register for the course!), how do we define detection efficiency? What is detector tomography?
- Down conversion, quantum dots, nitrogen vacancies, What’s the difference between a single photon source and simply ‘faint light’?
- Measurements and use cases
- Detection efficiency, photon number, dark counts, jitter, dark counts. What is ‘spooky action at a distance’? What does a calibration report tell me?
- Cryogenics, optics, optical fibers and optimization, statistics and uncertainty
