Modular and versatile, the ID Qube sequence is a complete vary of single-photon detectors designed to satisfy the necessities of photon counting purposes, equivalent to quantum communications & Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), LiDAR, Fluorescence lifetime measurements, dynamic mild scattering and lots of extra.

IDQ has developed these plug-and-play, ultra-low noise and compact modules for single-photon detection purposes, accessible both in free-running or gated mode, for each asynchronous or synchronous single-photon detection.

Key advantages of the ID Qube:

  • Compact design
  • Built-in photon counting capabilities
  • Extremely-low darkish depend
  • Low jitter
  • Free-running & gated modes (quick or sluggish gating)
  • Free-space & fiber-coupled (SMF/MMF) choices
  • C-mount choice, base plate choice to be coupled with normal optical tables, threads appropriate with 30mm cage system

Along with the versatile and multi-coupling prospects of the sensor, explicit consideration has been additionally paid to make sure each the graphical and programming consumer interfaces are user-friendly and combine interface with programming language, equivalent to LabView, Python, Matlab, C/C++.

The ID Qube modules can be found in free-space appropriate with C-mount equipment or fiber-coupled (SMF/MMF) variations. They provide the chance to obtain exterior pulses for quick and sluggish gating operations, relying on the mannequin.

The primary module is optimised for fast-gated (as much as 100 MHz) operations at telecom wavelengths, making it ideally suited to quantum communication protocol. A second module presents ultra-low noise free-running operation which is especially required for asynchronous photon detection, photon correlation and Time of Flight measurement.

For much more effectivity within the lab, ID Quantique’s merchandise are specifically designed to be simply and shortly mixed with different gadgets. The ID Qube detectors will be operated along with the ID900 Time Controller, IDQ’s central platform which mixes the functionalities of a time-tagger, counter, delay and sample generator. One ID900 Time Controller can be utilized to regulate as much as four ID Qube modules.

ID Qube at SPIE Photonics West
The ID Qube sequence might be displayed on the SPIE Photonics West present (sales space # 4356) in San Francisco, USA, 1-6 February.“We’re thrilled so as to add the brand new ID Qube Sequence to the lengthy record of pioneering photon counting options ID Quantique has developed over the past 2 a long time”Stated Marc Niklès, SVP Quantum Sensing at ID Quantique.

This new compact serie replaces IDQ’s ID210 & ID221 detectors.
