Samenvatting

Superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPDs) are the detectors of choice in quantum optics applications due to their leading performances. To exploit their performances, great care must be devoted to efficiently couple light from a single-mode fiber to their small area, ∼10 μm in size, at cryogenic temperature (∼3K). In addition, to further improve the SNSPDs functionality, implementing the photon number resolving capability, arrays of spatially multiplexed SNSPDs, must be realized. We will discuss our results obtained for these two approaches.
