Quantum Communications Transmitter at 775 nm, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Quantum Communications Transmitter at 775 nm, Phase I
We propose a novel new architecture for a quantum communications laser transmitter that is designed for free-space polarization encoded quantum key distribution (QKD) between a spacecraft and a ground based system. The transmitter will operate at 775 nm, a wavelength that has previously been analyzed to be optimize free-space QKD due to the combined influence of atmosphere transition and detection efficiency by Si:APD detectors.
