Welcome to the homepage of Single Photon Workshop (SPW) 2022, which will be held at the KIST Seoul campus, South Korea. SPW 2022 will be the tenth installment in a series of workshops started in 2003 at NIST Gaithersburg on single-photon technologies. It will be an exciting opportunity for those interested in this field to learn about the state-of-the-art and to foster continuing partnerships with others seeking to advance the capabilities of such technologies.
The topics to be covered include:

Single-Photon Detectors
  • Single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs, SiPMs).
  • Superconducting detectors.
  • Detector arrays
  • Photon-number-resolving detectors.
Single-Photon Sources
  • Heralded single-photon sources (SPDC, SFWM)
  • Color centers and quantum dots
  • Entangled photon-pair sources
  • Generation of non-classical states of light
  • Characterization of detectors and sources.
  • Quantum sensing.
  • Weak measurements.
  • Novel quantum measurement schemes
  • Quantum communications and networks
  • Quantum random number generators
  • Imaging and ranging
  • Biology, chemistry, and astronomy
Optical Quantum Computing and Simulation
  • Programmable quantum circuits
  • Boson samplers and other quantum simulators
