Passive Measurement-Device-Independent Quantum Key Distribution

Efficient Passive Measurement-Device-Independent Quantum Key Distribution Author(s): Chun-Hui Zhang, Chun-Mei Zhang, and Qin Wang  To date, only active-decoy-state methods have been adopted in current measurement-device-independent (MDI) quantum key distribution (QKD) protocols, causing security loopholes when modulating multiple light intensities with practical devices. To solve this […]
