Quantum communications in a moderate-to-strong turbulent space

  title={Quantum communications in a moderate-to-strong turbulent space},
  author={Masoud Ghalaii and Stefano Pirandola},
Since the invention of the laser in the 60s, one of the most fundamental communication channels has been the free-space optical channel. For this type of channel, a number of effects generally need to be considered, including diffraction, refraction, atmospheric extinction, pointing errors and, most importantly, turbulence. Because of all these adverse features, the free-space channel is more difficult to study than a stable fiber-based link. For the same reasons, only recently it has been… Expand
