Quantum key distribution with a heralded single photon source and a photon number resolving detector

Date/Time: 9 June 2005 - ()

Speaker: Tomoyuki Horikiri (PhD student, The University of Tokyo, Japan)

Experimental imperfections (dark counts and inefficiencies of detectors, multiphoton emissions of sources, losses in quantum channels ...) must be decreased for practical quantum key distribution. And the system must have required properties such as robustness, stability, and operability at an ambient temperature.
