Faked state generator


This is Eve’s faked state generator for the Bob control experiment. The fiber optic setup in the suitcase can prepare polarization faked states at around 800 nm wavelength, and is easily reconfigurable for different experiments. The collimator in the background sends light prepared by Eve towards Bob’s receiver telescope, as can be seen in a wider picture.
