Distance limitations on the entanglement distribution over optical fiber due to chromatic and polarization mode dispersion


We compare bounds to the reach of potential fiber-optic quantum cryptography systems based on entanglement distribution. The bounds arise from both chromatic and polarization mode dispersion. We find that polarization mode dispersion limits the transmission for systems deployed over lower dispersion fibers such as NZDSF.
