Superconducting Transition Edge Sensors for Quantum Optics
Thomas Gerrits, Adriana E. Lita, Brice R. Calkins
High efficiency single-photon detectors allow novel measurements in quantum information processing and quantum photonic systems. The photon-number resolving transition edge sensor (TES) is known for its near-unity detection efficiency and has been used in a number of landmark quantum optics experiments. We review the operating principle of the optical superconducting transition edge sensor, its use for quantum optics and quantum information processing and review its recent implementation in integrated photonic platforms.
