Quantum Communication: Harnessing AOMs for Secure Transmission

Quantum communication relies on the transmission of quantum states between distant locations. AOMs are used to modulate the characteristics of photons, enabling the creation of entangled states or encoding quantum information onto photons for transmission through optical fibers.

This modulation ensures the faithful transmission of quantum states, which is essential for applications like quantum key distribution (QKD) and quantum teleportation.
