Sander Dorenbos: seeing the (almost) invisible with nano-wires quality - part 1
Sander Dorenbos: seeing the (almost) invisible with nano-wires quality - part 1 Detecting a single photon may seem overkill for most purposes. However, looking at such tiny amounts of light is essential for researchers working  with quantum computers as well as for  chip manufacturers, just to mention two examples.
