We demonstrate a client-server quantum key distribution (QKD) scheme. Large resources such as laser and detectors are situated at the server side, which is accessible via telecom fiber to a client requiring only an on-chip polarization rotator, which may be integrated into a handheld device. The detrimental effects of unstable fiber birefringence are(More)
Broadband quantum memories hold great promise as multiplexing elements in future photonic quantum information protocols. Alkali-vapor Raman memories combine high-bandwidth storage, on-demand readout, and operation at room temperature without collisional fluorescence noise. However, previous implementations have required large control pulse energies and have(More)
We report on a quantum key distribution (QKD) experiment where a client with an on-chip polarisation rotator can access a server through a telecom-fibre link. Large resources such as photon source and detectors are situated at server-side. We employ a reference frame independent QKD protocol for polarisation qubits and show that it overcomes detrimental(More)
paraelectrics SrTiO 3 and KTaO 3 . [ 9 ] However, the ultra-weak nature of the dipole moment in TSCC referred to below may reduce the effects of such long-range dipole interactions to a narrow temperature region around the critical point. This would mean that more conventional classical or quantum critical behaviour would be expected over a wider range of(More)
