Paper Abstract

Quantum communication or more specifically quantum information processing is considered as the future of information science and technology. In this paper we propose a scheme to implement quantum communication at the device level using integrated optics. We implement the quantum communication protocol BB84, in a waveguide based circuit using integrated optics. We also propose a high dimensional quantum key distribution method implementation using integrated optics. In the earlier one polarized photons are used as the carriers of quantum information, while in second one electromagnetic modes in the waveguide are used to carry quantum information. The high dimensional quantum communication method is used to increase the information content of protocol thus increasing on the data rates. This is done by encoding into a larger state space. We have used electromagnetic modes for encoding since the polarization method is not efficient to carry information in a larger state space.
