Abstract:

In this report we summarize the technical progress accomplished during the first quarter of the second year of the SeaKey program. Our progress stems from our year 1 work on the program executing tasks 1 and 2. The two major tasks we are executing this year, identified in figure 1, are 1 designing a proposed implementation for a freespace QKD link optimized for operation in a naval environment and 2 calculating the achievable key rate of the aforementioned QKD link in realistic environmental conditions. This quarter we have begun in earnest the design and analysis of a homodyne receiver for implementing CV QKD.
