Benchmarking machine learning algorithms for adaptive quantum phase estimation with noisy intermediate-scale quantum sensors
Quantum phase estimation is a paradigmatic problem in quantum sensing and metrology. Here we show that adaptive methods based on classical machine learning algorithms can be used to enhance the precision of qu...

A study to develop a robust method for measuring the detection efficiency of free-running InGaAs/InP single-photon detectors
The challenges faced in a comparison of measuring the detection efficiency of free-running InGaAs/InP single-photon avalanche detectors (InGaAs/InP SPAD) were studied by four European National Metrology Instit...
