Header and Body 4


  • Commercial off-the-shelf components for easy implementation
  • Broadband LO can be amplified to allow long-distance transmission without degradation
  • Homodyne reception with broadband LO does not have data bandwidth limitation; i.e. the new configuration can provide secure transmission at rates 2-4 orders of magnitude better than existing methods
  • Protocol can also provide for highly secure quantum key distribution (QKD)
