Abstract

Advances in the development of superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPD) have guaranteed that they remain a leading photon detection technology in applications such as quantum information, low-power optical communications, and the life sciences. Recent demonstrations have shown significant improvements in key metrics such as high count-rates, jitter (90%) with low dark counts (
