Quantum Candela - News

Single Photon Workshop 2011
Monday 27 – Thursday 30 June 2011 : PTB Braunschweig, Germany

PTB (Physikaliche -Technische Bundesanstalt) announces the fifth workshop on single-photon devices and applications, following the workshops held at NIST Gaithersburg in 2003, NPL in 2005, INRiM in 2007 and NIST Boulder in 2009. The workshop is intended to bring together a broad range of people with interests in single-photon technology and applications. We will survey the current state and latest developments of single-photon detectors and sources with a focus on existing limitations, deficiencies and opportunities for improvement. There will be a special session reporting on efforts towards realising photon-based standards organised as part of this Qu-candela project.
