Using coherent quantum communication to enhance the security of intra-city cryptography.
Our quantum key distribution systems are based on coherent telecommunication technology. Quantum states are distributed with state-of-the-art rates of 10 GBaud via an optical fiber link, enabling the fastest key generation rates for metropolitan security applications.
The following table illustrates the characteristics of our research system.
