We briefly describe a project which aims at proving that single-photon sensing can be made accessible in form of low-cost off-the-shelf micro-devices with micro-optical/micro-mechanical coupling systems. In order to achieve this challenging goal, we are making use of two different micro-technologies, not yet fully established but promising and innovative in and of themselves. We then plan to combine them into a more challenging micro-technology, capable of bringing the single-photon handling to the shelf.
