We have distributed entangled photons directly through the atmosphere to a receiver station 7.8 km away over the city of Vienna, Austria at night. Detection of one photon from our entangled pairs constitutes a triggered single photon source from the sender. With no direct time-stable connection, the two stations found coincidence counts in the detection(More)
We implement an entanglement distribution network based on wavelength-multiplexing and optical switching for quantum communication applications. Using a high-brightness source based on spontaneous parametric down-conversion in periodically-poled lithium niobate waveguides, we generate polarisation entangled photon pairs with a broad spectrum covering the(More)
Interference of photons emerging from independent sources is essential for modern quantum-information processing schemes, above all quantum repeaters and linear-optics quantum computers. We report an observation of nonclassical interference of two single photons originating from two independent, separated sources, which were actively synchronized with a rms(More)
Quantum Entanglement is the essence of quantum physics [1] and inspires fundamental questions about the principles of nature. Moreover it is also the basis for emerging technologies of quantum information processing such as quantum cryptography [2, 3], quantum teleportation [4, 5, 6, 7, 8] and quantum computation [9]. Bell's discovery [11], that(More)
We demonstrate non-degenerate down-conversion at 810 and 1550 nm for long-distance fiber based quantum communication using polarization entangled photon pairs. Measurements of the two-photon visibility, without dark count subtraction, have shown that the quantum correlations (raw visibility 89%) allow secure quantum cryptography after 100 km of non-zero(More)
During a screening for new microbial α-glucan phosphorylases corynebacteria were found to be promising, not-yet-identified producers of these particular enzymes. A maltodextrin phosphorylase (MDP) from Corynebacterium callunae was isolated, partially characterized, and used for the production of glucose-1-phosphate (G-1-P) from different α-glucans. In(More)
