Diamond Superconducting Nanowire Single Photon Detectors

Grant number: DP190102852 | Funding period: 2019 - 2022



This project aims to develop a new type of single photon detector suitable for applications in quantum communication, sensing and metrology by exploiting recent breakthroughs in the discovery of superconductivity in boron doped diamond. This project expects to demonstrate a new, scalable architecture for integrated photonic circuits using the special properties of diamond which allow single-photon quantum emitters, passive optical components, and single-photon detectors to be integrated into one monolithic diamond chip. Expected outcomes include accelerating the uptake of Australian quantum technologies and strengthening international collaborations. Significant benefits include enhanced adv..
