This study aims at proving that single photon sensing can be made accessible in the form of cheap off-the-shelf micro-devices with micro-optical/micro-mechanical coupling systems. In order to achieve this challenging goal, use is made of different micro-technologies, not yet fully established but promising and innovative in and of themselves. It is planned to combine them into a more challenging micro-technology capable of making single photon handling off-the-shelf.

Abstract

This study aims at proving that single photon sensing can be made accessible in the form of cheap off-the-shelf micro-devices with micro-optical/micro-mechanical coupling systems. In order to achieve this challenging goal, use is made of different micro-technologies, not yet fully established but promising and innovative in and of themselves. It is planned to combine them into a more challenging micro-technology capable of making single photon handling off-the-shelf. Moreover, the technology to be implemented should make it possible to provide photonic sensors in a ready-to-go fashion.
