About This Webinar
Quantum entanglement occurs when two photons remain connected, even over large distances, such that actions performed on the quantum state of one have an instant effect on the other. Studying this phenomenon requires the ability to accurately register single-photon events with high confidence and high measurement rates. Similarly, the rich field of quantum gas studies, such as Bose Einstein Condensates (BECs), benefits considerably from advanced detectors that can image fast dynamics of trapped atoms or ions, often in small quantities.

Fundamental research advances across the broad fields of quantum imaging feed directly into advanced domains such as quantum computing, quantum communication, quantum lithography, and quantum sensing. Colin Coates presents high-performance detector solutions that are central to fundamental research on entangled photon systems and ultracold quantum gases.
