Continuous-Variable Quantum Secret Sharing in Fast-Fluctuating Channels

Recently, several continuous-variable quantum secret sharing (CV-QSS) protocols were proposed, while most of them are limited to the fiber channel systems with a relatively stable transmissivity. However, by means of complex channels, the transmissivity fluctuates dramatically in time with a probability distribution, which will lead to a fast-fluctuating attack. Therefore, the security analysis of CV-QSS […]

Millimeter-Waves to Terahertz SISO and MIMO Continuous Variable Quantum Key Distribution

With the exponentially increased demands for large bandwidth, it is important to think about the best network platform as well as the security and privacy of the information in communication networks. Millimeter (mm)-waves and terahertz (THz) with high carrier frequencies are proposed as the enabling technologies to overcome Shannon’s channel capacity limit of existing communication […]

Variational Quantum Optimization of Nonlocality in Noisy Quantum Networks

The noise and complexity inherent to quantum communication networks leads to technical challenges in designing quantum network protocols using classical methods. We address this issue with a hybrid variational quantum optimization (VQO) framework that simulates quantum networks on quantum hardware and optimizes the simulation using differential programming. We maximize nonlocality in noisy quantum networks to […]
