Analysis on the Effect of Polarization Drift on the Efficiency of Generating Keys in a Quantum Communication System Based on the B92 Protocol
Abstract— Focusing on the polarization drift in a practical quantum communication system, analyze
the effect on the efficiency of producing key and mutual information in a quantum communication
system based on B92 protocol. Results show that when the polarization drift angle is 0°, the
probability receiver can obtain measurement respond comes to minimum value: 0.25, while the
mutual information between the sender and the receiver gets the maximum value: 1; When the angle
is 90°, the probability reaches the maximum value: 0.75, while the mutual information gets the
minimum value: 0.0817; The probability receiver correctly measures the state actually is constantly
0.25. Comparing to BB84, the variation of mutual information in B92 is violent from 0.0817 to 1.
Index Terms— B92 protocol; quantum communication; polarization drift; quantum key distribution.
