    • Exploration of Higher-Order Quantum Interference Landscapes 

      Agne, Sascha (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-31)
      Earth, Moon and Sun unite when they star together in the three-body problem, whose intricate plot still baffles us today. For some reason, the factorization of the two-body problem into two one-body problems does not, in ...
    • Free Space Quantum Key Distribution to Moving Platforms 

      Pugh, Christopher (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-24)
      The quantum space age has officially begun and many important milestones and achievements have recently been demonstrated, such as the exciting launch and results of the first quantum demonstration satellite, Micius. ...
    • Heralding Photonic Qubits for Quantum Communication 

      Meyer-Scott, Evan (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-22)
      Quantum communication attempts to harness the unique rules of quantum mechanics to perform communication tasks that are difficult or impossible using classical rules. To realize these benefits, information must be carried ...
    • Laser annealing irradiated silicon single-photon avalanche photodiodes for quantum satellite receiver 

      Lim, Jin Gyu (University of Waterloo, 2018-05-11)
      Single-photon avalanche photodiodes (SPADs) are a practical option for space-based quantum communications requiring single-photon detection. However, radiation damage to SPADs significantly increases their dark count rates ...
    • Polarization Entangled Photon Sources for Free-Space Quantum Key Distribution 

      Tannous, Ramy (University of Waterloo, 2018-08-27)
      Free-space quantum key distribution has recently achieved several milestones, such as the launch and results of the first quantum satellite, Micius. The emergence of quantum satellites has certainly made progress towards ...
    • PPLN-based photon pair sources toward biphoton quantum frequency conversion 

      Gunther, Aimee Kirsten (University of Waterloo, 2018-08-03)
      While quantum properties of light promise much-needed enhancements to metrology, further development of quantum light sources and associated tools are needed to readily harness two-photon interactions via energy-time ...
    • Quantum key distribution devices: How to make them and how to break them 

      Kaiser, Sarah (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-30)
      As more aspects of modern society depend on digital communication, we increasingly rely on infrastructure that ensures the privacy and security of this communication. Classically, this has been provided by cryptographic ...
    • Silicon avalanche photodiodes for satellite based quantum communication 

      DSouza, Ian (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-25)
      Single photons detectors are required for applications like quantum key distribution and testing Bell's inequalities. Silicon avalanche photodiodes (Si APD's) have advantages like low dark count rate. This thesis aims to ...
    • Single-photon detectors for long distance quantum communications 

      Anisimova, Elena (University of Waterloo, 2018-01-23)
      Quantum communications and quantum cryptography are developing rapidly during the last decades caused partly by a fast progress in quantum computing. Quantum cryptography provides an unconditionally secure way of communicating ...
