Abstract:Quantum mechanics is often presented as a limitation on achieving certain tasks, such as the simultaneous determination of position and momentum. Recently, the idea of using Heisenberg's uncertainty relations for secure communication has been explored both theoretically and experimentally. Here we report a cryptographic channel using a 23 km optical cable below lake Geneva.
