Experimental advances in broadband continuous variable quantum key distribution

Williams, Timothy J


Quantum key distribution is the first major area of quantum information science to find practical use outside of its field. Quantum key distribution involves transmitting cryptographic keys using quantum states. Any attempt to eavesdrop on the transmission will, necessarily by the laws of quantum mechanics, disturb or destroy the states. By identifying and only using keys that have not been disturbed, a perfectly secure cryptographic system can be realised. ¶ Discrete variable quantum key...[Show more]
