Study of the Quantum Channel between Earth and Space for Satellite Quantum Communications

Abstract

In this work there are studied the conditions for the effective quantum communications between a terminal on Earth and the other onboard of an orbiter. The quantum key distribution between a LEO satellite and a ground station is studied in particular. The effect of the propagation over long distances as well as the background during day or night is modeled… (More)
