Abstract:

This is the 1st quarterly Technical Progress Report summarizing progress on the Sea-optimized Quantum Key Exchange SeaQuaKE project, which is led by Applied Communications Sciences under the ONR Free Space Optical Quantum Key Distribution Special Notice 13-SN-0004 under ONRBAA13-001. In this technical report, we describe our first steps towards developing the hyperentanglement source architecture and associated mathematical model. In addition, we discuss our initial progress towards the freespace quantum channel model and planning for the experimental validation effort.
