Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We describe a quantum key distribution protocol that breaks the one-photon-per-bit barrier, is secure against the optimum collective Gaussian attack, and is capable of a 2 Gbps secret-key rate over a 50 km fiber link.
