Influence of Avalanche-Photodiode Dead Time on the Security of High-Speed Quantum-Key Distribution Systems

Published

Abstract

We study the correlation in the sifted key induced by the dead time of Geirger-mode avalanche-photodiodes (APDs) in quantum key distribution systems. A simultaneous holdoff of the APDs (SHA) technique eliminates these correlations.
