In this project we will study the fundamental limit of time resolution of single photon detectors based on superconducting nanowires. The project will combine clean room nanofabrication with experimental work in quantum optics as well as design and realization of cryogenic amplifiers. Reaching extreme time resolutions with single photon detectors will enable a vast amount of applications ranging from fundamental quantum optics where high time resolution can make non-degenerate transitions indistinguishable to laser ranging where time resolution will result in unprecedented spatial resolution.
