RF-assisted coherent detection based continuous variable (CV) QKD with high secure key rates over atmospheric turbulence channels

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In this invited paper, a high-speed continuous-variable quantum key distribution (CV-QKD) system is investigated in the presence of atmospheric turbulence, which is enabled by employing the wavelength, polarization, and orbital angular momentum (OAM) states as degrees of freedom. Four-state discrete modulation is used for the key shaping for the convenience of easy generation, as well as to enhance the reconciliation efficiency. The polarization insensitive atmospheric turbulence channel is emulated by two spatial light modulators (SLMs) on which randomly generated azimuthal phase patterns yielding Andrews' spectrum are recorded. The phase noise is mitigated by the phase noise cancellation (PNC) stage, and transmittance fluctuation is monitored directly by the D.C. component in the PNC stage. After system calibration, a total secret key rate (SKR) of 240 Mb/s can be reached in the presence of atmospheric turbulence.
