Research into single-photon sources receives extensive coverage in scientific journals

EMPIR project Single-photon sources as new quantum standards (17FUN06, SIQUST) is carrying out the fundamental work needed to develop a new quantum standard, assessing and establishing new materials and designs for single-photon sources. Light sources that can emit single photons are a building block of optical quantum technologies, which have far-reaching applications from low-flux radiometry and ultra-secure communication to biomedical imaging.

The work of the project has resulted in a number of scientific papers, some of which have featured in high-profile publications. These are:

 

 


This EMPIR project is co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the EMPIR Participating States.
