Dual-band stabilization (click to enlarge)
The increase in QKD range arises from the use of a dual-band stabilization technique using two optical frequencies. The approach cancels out the effects of temperature fluctuations along a long-distance link, which can slightly alter the dimensions of optical fiber and "scramble" quantum bits.
