Applied Research in Quantum Information Science


Tuesday, February 24, 2015


The purpose of this applied research (6.2) topic is to identify, understand, and resolve key issues associated with the operation of a free space optical quantum key distribution (QKD) system that functions in a maritime environment including the development and maturation of algorithms, protocols; and methods that resolve these issues; determine the performance of and demonstrate the capability of these algorithms, protocols and methods in order to understand their benefits and limitations; as well as to identify and provide technical solutions for performance barriers associated with supporting technologies such as single photon sources, detectors, and adaptive optics, needed to support operating in the context of a free space optical QKD system in the maritime environment.
