We wish to demonstrate the application of a qCMOS detector, capable of performing quantum enhanced imaging by photon counting. Presenting this work will be beneficial in allowing investigators consider the potential applications of the qCMOS technology in the quantum imaging domain.
Until now, quantum enhanced imaging schemes were realized through correlations between single photons. Due to the limiting readout noise of CCD and CMOS technologies, our ability to count photons was reduced to distinguishing between zero photons and one or more. Acquisition speeds were therefore limited by both the readout rate of the detector array, and the necessity of operating in an extremely sparse regime.
However, the recent development of a qCMOS camera that is capable of photon number resolving due to its low readout noise, has enabled quantum enhanced imaging at higher illumination regimes. Operating in such a way will allow an increased data acquisition rate, accelerating the development of quantum enhanced imaging schemes for their implementation into end-user technologies.
