The large-area picosecond photodetector (LAPPD TM ) is an ultrafast imaging detector with single-photon sensitivity. The time resolution approaches the coherence time of light filtered with
dielectric-layer interference filters, and so, the detector can resolve photon occupations in each longitudinal mode of light. Furthermore, if used with diffraction-limited optics matched to the
spatial resolution, the detector can also resolve about 400 by 400 transverse modes. LAPPD TM is thus an enabling technology for quantum optics where photon occupation numbers in each electromagnetic-field mode in 6-dimensional phase space are relevant, for example photon-
correlation experiments (Hanbury Brown - Twiss, or ghost imaging).
