<< We are very happy with the SNSPDs from Single Quantum and the overall experience.
The high-efficiency, low timing jitter, low dark counts and amazing resolution of the system are all essential to prove our results… and knowing that we can trust what we measure just makes our lives easier: we can focus at bettering our experiment, instead of worrying about the detection side of things. >>
