Superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) have developed into a leading sensor technology for ultraviolet to mid-infrared light as they offer efficient photon-counting with high repetition rate, short timing jitter and low dark count rates [1]. The integration of these detectors with wideband transparent Si3N4 nanophotonic waveguides on silicon chips [2] enables novel functionality for quantum optics experiments through circuit configurability and superior sensing performance. Here we present progress towards realizing a massively parallelized system for ultra-fast single-photon detection. Our current chip comprises 16 SNSPDs fabricated from NbTiN thin-films on Si3N4 waveguides showing a fabrication yield of > 90%. We realize efficient interfaces between the detectors on the chip and multiple optical fiber channels as low-loss and broadband out-of-plane couplers produced in 3D direct laser writing [3], therewith significantly widening the application space for waveguide-integrated SNSPDs, e.g. for high-bandwidth quantum key distribution with high system detection efficiency.
