PicoQuant held the 2nd International Symposiums on "Single Photon based Quantum Technologies" from May 22 to 24, 2019 in Berlin. The inspiring three day event brought together top scientists from all over the world to report on and share their latest discoveries in various reserach area such as single-photon detectors and sources, metrology and sensing, correlations and entanglement, communication and QKD, information processing, as well as integrated photonic quantum circuits.

The 39 presentations covering the latest developments in these fields were enjoyed by over 70 scientists from all over the world. The symposium program was rounded out by a poster session with 28 contributions. Informal gatherings during breaks as well as during the welcoming reception provided ample opportunities for networking and fruitful idea exchanges.
