Single-photon sources as new quantum standards

Project: EU project

Project Details


Improving single-photon sources to accelerate quantum technology innovation.
Single-photon sources are necessary in several fields of quantum technologies: quantum metrology, quantum communications, quantum computing, etc.
Project develops new absolute standard radiation sources based on single-photon emitters and the necessary metrological infrastructure.
VTT MIKES develops pulsed excitation lasers for single-photon emitters and customised optical excitation schemes for single-photon sources. 
Call 2017: Fundamental Metrology
This project has received funding from the EMPIR programme co-financed by the Participating States and from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
