Detection-time-bin-shift Polarization Encoding Quantum Key Distribution System

Published

Author(s)

Lijun Ma, Tiejun Chang, Xiao Tang

Abstract

A detection-time-bin-shift scheme for polarization encoding QKD is proposed. This scheme can reduce cost and overcome the security loss caused by dead-time and the unbalanced characteristics of detectors. This scheme is experimentally demonstrated with the B92 protocol.
