Abstract: The aim of this project is to develop new absolute standard radiation sources, which exploit the discrete and quantum nature of photons, and the necessary metrological infrastructure. These sources will be based on single-photon emitters with a calculable photon emission rate and high purity, i.e. with a very low multiple photon emission probability. Such sources hold promise as new quantum standards which will have a large number of applications, e.g. for use in the calibration of single-photon detectors, for the realisation of the SI base unit candela, for quantum random-number generation, for quantum key distribution, for sub-shot noise metrology, for quantum-enhanced metrology, and for photon-based quantum computation.
