683rd WE-Heraeus Seminar on Physics and Applications of Superconducting Nanowire Single Photon Detectors

12-16 November 2018

Conference dates: 12-16 November 2018, Bad Honnef Germany

Registration deadline: 30th of June 2018 by midnight

Superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPD) are an enabling technology for many applications, including tests of fundamental physics, high-precision sensing, quantum communication protocols and tasks in quantum information processing. As such, the demand for SNSPDs in cutting edge science and technology has grown rapidly in recent years. With this seminar we aim at providing a forum for scientists investigating, developing and using SNSPDs in a variety of contexts. The workshop will include more than 20 invited contributions covering the following areas:

* Working principles and fundamental limits, in particular the role of timing jitter

* Comparison of different material systems, particularly amorphous versus crystalline thin films, and the potential of high-temperature superconductors

* Applications and emerging technologies, in particular integration on-chip

Please keep in mind, the participation number is limited
