Quantum communications infrastructure architecture: theoretical background, network structure and technologies. A review of recent studies from a European public infrastructure perspective [article]

Adam M. Lewis, Petra F. Scudo
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The more sophisticated schemes depend on ongoing advances in the generation and distribution of entanglement.  ...  Quantum key distribution networks may be classified as trusted node; quantum repeater-entanglement-swapping based; point-to-multipoint based on passive beam splitters, active optical switchers or WDM;  ...  The scheme is analysed with respect to optimal scaling and allows for long distance communication and fidelities approaching 1.  ...

A macroscopic violation of no-signaling in time inequalities? How to test temporal entanglement with behavioral observables

Patrizio E. Tressoldi, Markus A. Maier, Vanessa L. Buechner, Andrei Khrennikov
2015 Frontiers in Psychology  
The analyses of three independent experiments show a strong violation of NSIT in two out of three of them, suggesting the hypothesis of a quantum-like temporal entanglement between human choices at t1  ...  NSIT consists of a set of inequalities and represents mathematical conditions for macro-realism which require only two measurements in time.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Marco Genovese of INRIM, for an independent analysis of our results and his suggestion on how to weight the total results.  ...

Securing quantum key distribution systems using fewer states

Nurul T. Islam, Charles Ci Wen Lim, Clinton Cahall, Jungsang Kim, Daniel J. Gauthier
2018 Physical Review A  
Quantum key distribution (QKD) allows two remote users to establish a secret key in the presence of an eavesdropper.  ...  The users share quantum states prepared in two mutually-unbiased bases: one to generate the key while the other monitors the presence of the eavesdropper.  ...  In a typical QKD session, Alice uses two independent quantum random number generators to generate the key and to make a preparation-basis choice, and Bob uses a quantum random number generator to make  ...
