Un capteur quantique de la prochaine génération

Représentation artistique de l’interaction de photons individuels incidents et d’un photodétecteur formé d’un réseau de nanofils

Travaillant sous la direction du professeur Michael Reimer, des chercheurs de l’Institut d’informatique quantique (IQC) ont mis au point un nouveau capteur quantique ayant recours à des nanofils semiconducteurs qui peuvent détecter rapidement et efficacement des particules individuelles de lumière sur une gamme sans précédent de longueurs d’onde allant de l’ultraviolet à l’infrarouge proche.
