The project is a joint development between Fondazione Bruno Kessler and University of Trento, in collaboration with University of Bern.
The goal of the activity is to develop a new concept of single photon detector for measuring the spatio-temporal correlations existing in a flux of coincident photons. Such a detector would find application in quantum science, e.g. for the detection of entangled photons in quantum imaging or the generation of quantum random numbers in quantum communication.
The Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies, established under the International Research Agenda Programme operated by the Foundation for Polish Science and hosted by the Centre of New Technologies, University of Warsaw, seeks to fill several junior research positions in the Quantum Technologies Laboratory led by Professor Konrad Banaszek. Current research effort in the Laboratory covers problems related to quantum optical communication, quantum metrology, and quantum imaging.
