Join the OSA Photonic Detection Technical Group and Dr. Jiansong Gao from the National Institute of Standards and Technology for a webinar on photon detection with superconducting detectors. Operating at a temperature less than 1 Kevlin above absolute zero, superconducting detectors provide ultimate sensitivity for photon detection and cover an ultra-wide wavelength range, from millimeter-wave, IR/visible/UV, to x-ray, and gamma ray. They are used in the most demanding applications such as the detection of cosmic-ray background (CMB) signal and single infrared photons.
The principle and recent progress of several important superconducting detector technologies will be presented by Dr. Gao in this hour-long webinar. Examples of their applications in quantum information processing and astrophysics will also be discussed during the webinar.
What You Will Learn in the Webinar:
In this webinar, the audience is expected to learn about the basics of superconducting detectors and their rich applications such as in quantum information processing and astrophysics.
Who Should Attend the Webinar:
PhD students, post-docs and young faculty members. This webinar would also be helpful for individuals working in the photonics industries.
