CVQKD using iXblue Modulators and matching RF amplifiers
24 Nov 2021
iXblue provides state-of-the-art components, i.e Modulators and matching RF amplifiers for Continuous Variable Quantum Key Distribution (QKD). QKD offers a forever privacy guaranteed by the laws of physics. A spy trying to intercept some information is detected before a message is even sent. And this is achieved simply by adapting the emitter and receiver hardware of an optical link (no need to send guards all along your optical fiber). In practice, QKD is achieved with optical telecommunication links, either via optical fibers or the propagation of light in vacuum (or the atmosphere) for satellite links.
iXblue high performance components improves Alice transmitter efficiency. These are Phase and Amplitude Modulators, RF amplifiers and come with outstanding performance such as low insertion loss modulators, high extinction ratio amplitude modulators, highly linear RF amplifier, …
