Article
A quantum key distribution system based on the subcarrier wave modulation method has been demonstrated which employs the BB84 protocol with a strong reference to generate secure bits at a rate of 16.5 kbit/s with an error of 0.5% over an optical channel of 10 dB loss, and 18 bits/s with an error of 0.75% over 25 dB of channel loss. To the best of o...

It is shown that pulsed irradiation (a wavelength of 10.6 mm and an energy density of 0.6 - 8.5 J cm-2) of glass with a waveguide layer containing silver ion leads to the formation of a ring, surrounding the irradiated zone and consisting of silver nanoparticles deposited on the glass surface. The possible process of formation of silver nanoparticl...

This paper presents the experimental results of synthesizing silver nanoparticles in the near-surface layers of glasses by heat treatment in water vapor. It is shown that the presence of a cracked layer on the glass surface has a substantial effect on the shape of the silver nanoparticles, and this manifests itself in the absorption spectra of the...

This paper presents the experimental results of a study of how temperature affects the luminescence of molecular clusters of silver in photothermorefractive glasses. It is shown that, after the glasses are UV-irradiated in the absorption band of cerium ions, intense and broad-band luminescence appears in the visible region. The luminescence centers...

It is shown that the action of a nanosecond pulse of laser radiation with wavelengths of 0.53 and 1.06 μm on glass with a waveguide layer that contains silver ions causes silver nanoparticles to be formed on the surface of the glass. The nanoparticles are fixed on the surface by the dielectric components of the glass. A mechanism is proposed for th...

In this paper we study performance of the subcarrier-wave quantum key distribution system (SCW QKD) in the presence of spontaneous Raman scattering (SpRS) noise generated by classical channels of dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) network within a single-mode optical fiber. We present the mathematical model for evaluation of the quantum...

In this paper we investigate the chromatic dispersion impact on the quantum key distribution system based on multi-mode weak coherent phase-coded states. We provide an asymptotic secure key rate estimation, taking into account error detection probability due to chromatic dispersion. We demonstrate numerically and experimentally that the effect of c...

We present an optical quantum random number generator based on vacuum fluctuation measurements that uses multi-mode coherent states generated by electro-optical phase modulation of an intense optical carrier. In this approach the weak coherent multi-mode state (or a vacuum state) interferes with the carrier, which acts as a local oscillator, on eac...

Full-text available
In this paper we report a continuous-variable quantum key distribution protocol using multimode coherent states generated on subcarrier frequencies of the optical spectrum. We propose a coherent detection scheme where power from a carrier wave is used as a local oscillator. We compose a mathematical model of the proposed scheme and perform its secu...

This paper introduces a model of Grover’s algorithm suitable for implementation in a linear photonic chip. We compare two known realizations of its main components, two-qubit CZ gates, in order to define optimal chip architecture. The algorithm operation is simulated considering directional coupler imperfection influence on the scheme parameters. W...
Article
Many quantum key distribution systems employ a laser followed by an optical attenuator to prepare weak coherent states in the source. Their mean photon number must be precalibrated to guarantee the security of key distribution. Here we experimentally show that this calibration can be broken with a high-power laser attack. We test four fiber-optic a...
Article
We experimentally demonstrate that a single-photon detector ID210 commercially available from ID Quantique is vulnerable to blinding and can be fully controlled by bright illumination. In quantum key distribution, this vulnerability can be exploited by an eavesdropper to perform a faked-state attack giving her full knowledge of the key without bein...
Preprint
In this paper we propose a continuous-variable subcarrier wave quantum key distribution scheme with homodyne detection and present its security analysis in the finite-size regime. We calculate a lower bound on the secret key rate for the system under the assumption that the quantum channel noise is negligible compared to detector dark counts, and a...
Preprint
The single photon detectors currently used in quantum communication schemes impose considerable restrictions on signal registration and dark count rates, require cooling to low temperatures, and are relatively expensive. Alternative approaches have recently been proposed that are based on the homogeneous and heterogeneous detection of quantum signa...

Although quantum communication systems are being deployed on a global scale, their realistic security certification is not yet available. Here we present a security evaluation methodology for a complete quantum communication system. We have subdivided the system into seven layers based on a hierarchical order of information flow, and categorised it...

We demonstrate a new method of silver nanoparticles formation on a silver-containing glass surface due to its irradiation by a pulsed CO2 and YAG:Nd lasers. The particles are formed as a result of reduction of silver ions from the glass at the edges of a laser torch emerging during evaporation and ablation. The settled particles are then fixed on s...

Quantum cryptography allows distributing secure keys between two users so that any performed eavesdropping attempt would be immediately discovered. However, in practice an eavesdropper can obtain key information from multi-photon states when attenuated laser radiation is used as a source of quantum states. In order to prevent actions of an eavesdro...

Subcarrier wave quantum key distribution systems demonstrate promising capabilities for secure quantum networking. However for this class of devices no implementation of secure decoy states protocol was developed. It leaves them potentially vulnerable to photon-number splitting attacks on quantum channel and limiting the key distribution distance....

We discuss a method for revealing a photon-number-splitting (PNS) attack in a quantum key distribution (QKD) system, which is based on analyzing the statistical distribution of photon numbers detected in each time interval. A relation for estimating the difference between the expected photon-number distribution and the one appearing in the course o...

We consider the possibility of multiplexing the classical and quantum signals in a quantum cryptography system with optical fiber used as a transmission medium. If the quantum signal is located at a frequency close to the frequency of classical signals, a set of nonlinear effects such as FWM (four-wave mixing) and Raman scattering is observed. The...
