Experiment Learn How Information Can Be Encrypted and Sent Using the Polarization of Light Generate an Encryption Key that Allows for Private Communication Encrypt, Transmit, and Decrypt a Secret Message Examine How an Eavesdropper Causes Errors in Transmission that Can Be Detected Demonstrate the Steps of the BB84 Encryption Protocol The EDU-QCRY1(/M) Quantum Cryptography Analogy Demonstration Kit contains components to model a data transmission setup using the BB84 encryption protocol. This encryption method allows a sender and receiver to generate an encryption key that only they know and eavesdroppers to be detected. In this analogy experiment, the polarization of transmitted light carries bits of information which are manipulated using half-wave plates and polarizing beamsplitters. The kit includes the lasers, half-wave plates, polarizing beamsplitters, and detectors required to model the sender (Alice), the receiver (Bob) and the eavesdropper (Eve).
