A luminescence microscope for the spectroscopic analysis of single photons

The continuous downscaling in photonics results in components with ever smaller dimensions that operate with ever lower power. Here, the repetitive emission and detection of individual photons constitutes the ultimate limit.
The proposed microscope is a unique setup that enables a consortium of researchers to analyse materials and devices with visible and infrared spectroscopy down to the single photon limit.
