Photon-number-resolving detectors (PNRDs), detectors that are sensitive to single photons but can also resolve the number of photons, have been developed in the last few decades. Nowadays, high performance PNRDs are available commercially, enabling photon-number detection with high fidelity.

In this talk, Dr. Cohen will show how photon-number detection can be exploited to demonstrate quantum enhancement in fields of quantum remote sensing, imaging and interferometry. For example, experimental results of super resolution interferometry, using parity detection, will be presented, as well as noise-improved range finding and LIDARs.
