EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Single Photon Sources and Detectors
Online Event

The power hidden in one single photon is unprecedented. But we need to find ways to harness that power. This meeting will discuss cutting-edge technologies paving the way for versatile and efficient pure single-photon sources and detection schemes with low dark count rates, high saturation levels, and high detection efficiencies. This meeting will gather the key players in the photonic industry pushing the development of these technologies towards commercializing products that harness the intrinsic properties of photons.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
