Absolute Quantum Efficiency Measurements Using Correlated Photons: Toaward a Measurement Protocol

Published

Author(s)

Alan L. Migdall

Abstract

Correlated photons can be used to measure of the quantum efficiency of photon counting photodetectors without ties to any externally calibrated standards. We present a study of the measurement systematics for the purpose of reducing the measurement uncertainties to the 0.1 % level and developing a robust measurement protocol.
