Low Jitter, Single Photon Imaging Based On Integrated Thin Film Superconducting Sensor And Readout Electronics. (Sensors Europe 2017)

Dr Jane Ireland, Senior Research Scientist
National Physical Laboratory
United Kingdom

Presentation Summary

The ability to image single photons is advantageous in applications including biomedical imaging, environmental sensing, defense and space. We are developing an integrated sensor technology where the photon detection and readout electronics are both realised via the single layer patterning of a superconducting thin film.
