Klea Dhimitri is an applications engineer out of Hamamatsu’s office in Bridgewater, NJ, where she focuses on product offerings for emerging quantum technology applications that utilize photonics. Her expertise includes photodetectors such as photomultiplier tubes (PMT), SPPC (SPAD), MPPC (SiPM), photodiodes, and avalanche photodiodes (APD), as well as their role in quantum applications. Klea leads Hamamatsu's efforts in bringing our R&D from Japan together with researchers and early adopters in North America to provide a range of photonic solutions, from detectors to light modulators to cameras, for the current and future quantum landscape. She also manages Hamamatsu Corporation’s engagement and activities in North American quantum hubs like Chicago Quantum Exchange (CQE). In her spare time, she enjoys endurance-based sports such as running and biking, and is currently training to run her first marathon in the fall.
