Towards Quantum Key Distribution System using Homodyne Detection with Differential Time-Multiplexed Reference
— In this work we present the principles and experimental demonstration of a BB84 Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) one way system using fainted pulses and a Quadrature Phase-Shift-Keying (QPSK) format including a timemultiplexed unmodulated carrier reference at Alice’s end, and a differential homodyne reception at Bob’s end. We also describe the secure electronics interface subsystem concept for the interaction with upper layers in an IP application. Keywords- Quantum Key Distribution, quantum cryptography, coherent detection, homodyne detection, QPSK modulation, BB84 protocol, photon counting, differential phase shift keying
