|Title:||Single-Photon Sources and Detectors|
|Published:||July 27, 2011|
|Abstract:||We review the current status of single-photon-source and single-photon-detector technologies operating at wavelengths from the ultraviolet to the infrared. We discuss applications of these technologies to quantum communication, a field that is currently driving much of the development of single-photon sources and detectors.|
