We present a Heralded Photon Source based only on linear optics and weak coherent states. By time-tuning a Hong-Ou-Mandel interferometer fed with frequency-displaced coherent states, the output photons can be synchronously heralded following sub-Poisson statistics, which is indicated by the second-order correlation function (g 2 (0) = 0.556). The absence of(More)
We experimentally demonstrate a two-way stable transmission of polarization encoded qubits over 23 km of spooled dispersion-shifted fiber with active polarization control in both directions, while simultaneously exchanging classical data. Two classical reference channels (one containing a telecom 10 Gb/s data stream), wavelength-multiplexed with the quantum(More)
A simple protocol which takes advantage of the inherent random times of detections in single photon counting modules is presented for random active basis choices when using entanglement-based protocols for Quantum Key Distribution (QKD). It may also be applicable to the BB84 protocol in certain cases. The scheme presented uses the single photon detectors(More)
