Super-Resolving Quantum Imaging and Detection

Project description

Sub-shot noise quantum imaging beating the diffraction limit

Diffraction sets a fundamental limit to the resolution of imaging and remote sensing systems, but photonic quantum technologies provide a route around this barrier. The EU-funded SURQUID project will introduce innovative techniques that will enable light detection and ranging (LIDAR) devices to achieve super-resolution below the Rayleigh diffraction limit and super-sensitivity below the shot noise limit. The novelty of the high-accuracy LIDAR system for quantum imaging lies in the combination of quantum homodyne detection and non-classical light. To achieve its goals, the project will merge expertise in ultrafast single photon detection, nanophotonic circuit design and quantum light generation.
