Paper Abstract

Quantum communication in free space is the next challenge of telecommunications. Since we want to determine the outcome of quantum communication by means of single photons, we must understand how a single photon interacts with the atmosphere. In this brief article, some simulation results for realistic and generic atmospheric conditions are reported, a related experiment is considered and its results are described and discussed. Furthermore, the setup of a future experiment, currently under preparation, is described and analyzed.
