Abstract
In order to improve the detection efficiency in QKD system, this paper has put forward a new quantum key distribution scheme based on the single photon frequency up-conversion detection technology and decoy-state BB84 protocol. A long wavelength pump light is adopted in single photon detector (SPD) to avoid the noise caused by spontaneous parametric down conversion (SPDC), thus an overall 28% detection efficiency is achieved which is five times of 4.5% in conventional InGaAs-based detectors. Moreover, the propagating distances has reached 90km and 150km with weak coherent pulse (WCP) and decoy weak coherent pulse (DWCP) respectively, which is 1.3 times and 1.05 times of the conventional InGaAs-based detectors of 70km and 140km.
