Performance evaluation of satellite-based quantum optical communication systems

This study aims at extending the concept of QKD to the optical free-space quantum communications domain. Moreover, the feasibility of a global satellite based quantum key distribution, in the low earth orbit (LEO) is investigated. Inline with this, three different link scenarios, including ground-to...
