Benefits of time-frequency coding for quantum key distribution
Author(s): J. Rödiger; N. Perlot; O. Benson; R. Freund

Paper Abstract

Quantum key distribution (QKD), the first applicable quantum technology, is able to distribute a secret key to two parties. This key can then be used as a one-time-pad for absolutely secure communication. The first QKD protocol was the polarization based BB84 protocol proposed in [1]. Since then many QKD protocols have been proposed and investigated [2, 3].
