We report on the feasibility of using burst-mode electronic dispersion compensation (BM-EDC) combined with a linear burst-mode receiver (LBMRx) to transmit 10 Gbit/s bursts with a loud/soft ratio of up to 15 dB over a reach greater than 100 km. The experimental demonstration used a LBMRx fabricated using a 250 nm SiGe BiCMOS technology and a BM-EDC(More)
We have developed a robust, BB84, 850 nm wavelength, gigahertz clock, phase encoding quantum key distribution system. This has been analyzed using a number of single-photon detectors and tested against predictions from our theoretical model.
