Abstract:

In this report we summarize the technical progress accomplished during the fourth quarter of the second year of the SeaKey program. In this quarter we started work on our experimental option task and that progress will be reported here.This quarter we have continued work calculating the key rates achievable parametrically with receiver performance. In addition, we describe the initial designs and construction of the CV-QKD transmitter and receiver we are planning to build, and provide an update on the construction of those sub-systems.
