Paper Abstract

The practical demonstration of an optical two-way time transfer based on single photon signal level has been completed. This approach enables to reach extreme timing stabilities and minimal systematic errors using existing electrooptic technologies. The crucial condition to almost eliminate systematic errors and to reach picosecond time transfer accuracy over free space communication channel is the maximum symmetry in experimental setup. In our indoor experiment we have achieved sub-picosecond precison and 3 ps accuracy. The entire system is compact and relatively simple.
