Abstract Title: Two-slit Interference, One Photon at a Time B
Abstract: Available only to those who have taken the Two-slit Interference, One Photon at a Time A.

Participants will see, at level B, Single-Photon Two-slit Interference:
  • how to replace the laser source by a bulb, and the photodiode detector by a photomultiplier tube, to get into the single-photon mode of operation
  • how to hear, and to see, the count rate of single-photon events
  • how to map out the interference signal that remains visible in the single-photon mode of operation
  • how to estimate the 'number of photons in the box' in the 'single-photon' mode
