Quantum illumination imaging with a single-photon avalanche diode camera

  journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics},
Single-photon-avalanche diode (SPAD) arrays are essential tools in biophotonics, optical ranging and sensing and quantum optics. However, their small number of pixels, low quantum efficiency and small fill factor have so far hindered their use for practical imaging applications. Here, we demonstrate full-field entangled photon pair correlation imaging using a 100-kpixels SPAD camera. By measuring photon coincidences between more than 500 million pairs of positions, we retrieve the full point…

Experimental Quantum Target Detection Approaching the Fundamental Helstrom Limit.
The results indicate that quantum illumination breaks the classical limit for up to 40%, while approaching the quantum limit imposed by the Helstrom limit, which demonstrates the advantage of quantum illumination, but also manifest its valuable potential of target detection.
Intensity interferometry-based 3D imaging.
This work presents a 3D imaging device based on real thermal light intensity interferometry using gated SPAD technology, which allows the use of more light modes to enhance 3D ranging performance.
