Passive state preparation in the Gaussian-modulated coherent-states quantum key distribution

Passive state preparation in the Gaussian-modulated coherent-states quantum key distribution
Bing Qi, Philip G. Evans, Warren P. Grice
In the Gaussian-modulated coherent-states (GMCS) quantum key distribution (QKD) protocol, Alice prepares quantum states actively: For each transmission, Alice generates a pair of Gaussian-distributed random numbers, encodes them on a weak coherent pulse using optical amplitude and phase modulators, ...
