Switchable detector array scheme to reduce the effect of single-photon detector’s deadtime in a multi-bit/photon quantum link

We explore the use of a switchable single-photon detector (SPD) array scheme to reduce the effect of a detector’s deadtime for a multi-bit/photon quantum link. The case of data encoding using M possible orbital-angular-momentum (OAM) states is specifically studied in this paper. Our method uses N SP...
