ID280 series detection system

Share this on social media:

ID Quantique's (IDQ) ID280 series detection system consists of a superconducting nanowire detector combined with high performance electronics. With quantum efficiencies higher than 50 per cent, count rates of up to 20MHz, dark counts <50Hz (at 2.3K), jitter below 70ps and no afterpulsing, this system outperforms all commercial single photon detectors in all parameters.

Besides the nanowire and electronics, the ID280 comes with everything that is necessary to install it in your own cryostat; including feed-throughs and cryogenic cables and connectors.

Id280 detectors are designed and produced by Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology (SIMIT, CAS), which take advantage of SIMIT's advanced superconductor electronics facilities.
