Title: Quantum key distribution and beyond: introduction

Abstract

This feature issue presents a collection of recent theoretical and experimental developments in the field of quantum key distribution (QKD) and its extension to other quantum cryptography protocols and devices. It encompasses work on a variety of QKD protocols, including continuous-variable, measurement-device independent, and twin-field QKD, as well as other newly proposed protocols, in platforms ranging from optical fiber through to wireless indoor and satellite links. It covers examples of hacking strategies and their countermeasures as well as applications of machine learning techniques in designing quantum networks. It also includes new developments in efficient superconducting photon-number resolving detectors as well as fast quantum random number generators. Distinctively, this feature issue demonstrates how different expertise in science and engineering can come together to produce an outcome that hopefully takes us one step closer to the wide-scale deployment of quantum communications technologies.
