EMPIR Joint Research Project "SIQUST" Progress Meeting
The 9-Month Meeting of the EMPIR SIQUST Joint Research Project will be hosted by INRIM from February 5 to February 6, 2019.
SIQUST (Single-photon sources as new quantum standards)
This project is carrying out the fundamental work needed to develop a new quantum standard, assessing and establishing new materials and designs for single-photon sources.
It is also developing essential elements of supporting measurement infrastructure, such as amplifiers and detectors.
By providing access to better single-photon sources, this project will catalyse future innovation in the field of optical quantum technology, and could contribute towards the realisation of a quantum definition of the luminous intensity SI base unit, the candela.
