Abstract

Superconducting nanowires can be used to detect single photons with very high sensitivity and speed in the near-infrared. We present recent results on single-photon detectors integrated with microcavities and waveguides for increased efficiency, and photon-number-resolving detectors based on arrays of nanowires.
