CNR-IFN, Single-Photon Detection with Integrated Superconducting Nanowires

Research Type: 
Experiment

The Institute for Photonics and Nanotechnologies (IFN) is part of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), which is the largest public research institution in Italy.  Research at the Rome unit is focused on the development of superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPDs) integrated with advanced optical cavities and passive quantum-optics circuits on semiconducting materials. IFN-CNR exploits a 200 m2 clean room facility, equipped with a 100 kV Electron Beam Lithography system together with all the tools needed for micro and nanofabrication.

Quantum Optics and Technology

Research Type: 
Theory

Research in our group focuses on quantum optics and technology. Quantum optics studies various phenomena in light-matter interaction, where the quantum properties of the light and matter play an important role. Quantum technology is an emerging interdisciplinary field, encompassing several fields of physics and technology. It aims to realize practical devices for quantum simulations, computing, communication and metrology.
