Project Description

Single Quantum was founded in January 2012 in Delft, the Netherlands as a spin-off from Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at TU Delft. Single Quantum develops and manufactures single photon detection systems based on the technology of superconducting nanowires. We are a team of scientists and engineers who are devoted to commercialize the technology and bring the best products and service to our users.

Light detectors are crucial components of optical imaging and telecommunication systems. The ultimate photon detector is capable of detecting even an elementary particle of light, a single photon.

Single Quantum develops the best single photon detectors, based on superconducting nanowires. The SNSPDs are provided with closed-cycle cryostat, which provides the low temperature environment for the superconducting nanowires. The high performance of our SNSPDs makes them the ideal choice for the most demanding applications.

Single Quantum has installed more than 60 single photon detector systems. With satisfied customers worldwide, we are recognized for the high quality and the reliability of our detectors. We provide the best solution for your experiment and dedicated customer service.
