How measurement science can improve confidence in research results

April 23, 2018
Author(s)
Anne L. Plant, Chandler A. Becker, Robert J. Hanisch, Ronald F. Boisvert, Antonio M. Possolo, John T. Elliott
The concepts and methods of measurement science can help provide clarity in the definition of reproducibility and its role in the scientific process. The qualities of rigorous research include reproducibility as one component, but there are other important

A Special Functions Handbook for the Digital Age

August 1, 2011
Author(s)
Ronald F. Boisvert, Charles W. Clark, Daniel W. Lozier, Frank W. Olver
The NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions (DLMF) is a reference work providing information on the properties of the special functions of applied mathematics. It is a successor to the highly successful NBS Handbook of Mathematical Functions

The NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions

Author(s)
Frank W. Olver, Daniel W. Lozier, Ronald Boisvert, Charles W. Clark
The NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions supplies validated reference information in 36 chapters on a wide selection of important mathematical functions, covering the properties necessary for their use in scientific applications, together with general

Experimental Study of High Speed Polarization -Coding Quantum Key Distribution with Sifted -Key Rates Over Mbit/s

June 1, 2009

Xiao Tang, Lijun Ma, Alan Mink, Anastase Nakassis, Barry J. Hershman, Joshua C. Bienfang, David H. Su, Ronald F. Boisvert, Charles W. Clark, Carl J. Williams
We have demonstrated a polarization encoded, fiber-based quantum key distribution system operating at 850 nm in the B92 protocol. With a quantum bit transmission rate i.e. optical pulse driving frequency of 625 MHz and a mean photon number of 0.1, we

Quantum Key Distribution System Operating at Sifted-Key Rate Over 4 Mbit/s 1

June 1, 2009
Author(s)
Xiao Tang, Lijun Ma, Alan Mink, Anastase Nakassis, Hai Xu, Barry J. Hershman, Joshua C. Bienfang, David H. Su, Ronald F. Boisvert, Charles W. Clark, Carl J. Williams
A complete fiber-based polarization encoding quantum key distribution (QKD) system based on the BB84 protocol has been developed at National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST). The system can be operated at a sifted key rate of more than 4 Mbit/s

Demonstration of an Active Quantum Key Distribution Network

August 1, 2006
Author(s)
Xiao Tang, Lijun Ma, Alan Mink, Anastase Nakassis, Hai Xu, Barry J. Hershman, Joshua Bienfang, David H. Su, Ronald Boisvert, Charles W. Clark, Carl J. Williams
We previously demonstrated a high speed, point to point, quantum key distribution (QKD) system with polariztion coding over a fiber link, in which the resulting cryptographic keys were used for one-time pad encryption of real time video signals. In this
