Satellite Quantum Communication via the Alphasat Laser Communication Terminal - Quantum Signals from 36 thousand kilometers above Earth

Abstract

By harnessing quantum effects, we nowadays can use encryption that is in principle proven to withstand any conceivable attack. These fascinating quantum features have been implemented in metropolitan quantum networks around the world. In order to interconnect such networks over long distances, optical satellite communication is the method of choice… (More)
