A "cool" environment for our SNSPDs
Single Quantum’s SNSPDs require a temperature of about 2.5 Kelvin, well below the critical temperature of the superconducting nanowire. This low temperature is achieved by using the so-called Gifford-McMahon refrigeration cycle, which requires a two-stage closed-cycle cold head and a Helium compressor.
The design ensures continuous operation of more than 10,000 hours with no need for liquid helium, offering a convenient and ready-to-use solution for your optical measurements.
Our flagship product
Single Quantum Eos provide a comprehensive measurement solution, including
There are three different compressor options: attocube IGLU, Sumitomo F-20L and Sumitomo CNA-11.
Maintenance of the cold head and compressor is important! The cold head requires maintenance after 10,000 – 15,000 hours of operation and the compressor requires maintenance after every 30,000 hours of operation.
A rack-mountable SNSPD system
Single Quantum Eos R12 is our new compact SNSPD system, featuring:
Furthermore, the whole system including the driver and the compressor can be as compact as 11U, making it ideal for industrial applications such as quantum communication.
SNSPD array for free-space imaging
SNSPDs do not always have to be coupled to optical fibers! Single Quantum provides a free-space coupling solution, SQCam™. It comprises a cryostat with an optical window, which can host an SNSPD array.
This system provides:
A compact and mobile He compressor
attocube IGLU is the newest product added to the fleet of He compressors you can choose from.
This innovative compressor saves the users from the hassle of cooling water and high-power requirements, thus overcoming extensive infrastructure requirements which had been compulsory in cryogenics applications so far.
Discover its advantages:
IGLU is compatible with Single Quantum Eos, Eos R12 and SQ Cam. Combined with Eos R12, IGLU provides the most compact rack-mountable solution on the market.
