Abstract Title: Quantum Interactive Learning Tutorial (QuILT) on Quantum Key Distribution
Abstract: We have been conducting research and developing and assessing a quantum interactive learning tutorial (QuILT) on quantum key distribution to expose students to contemporary and exciting applications of quantum mechanics. One protocol used in the QuILT on quantum key distribution involves generating a shared key over a public channel for encrypting and decrypting information using single photons with non-orthogonal polarization states and another protocol makes use of entanglement. The QuILT actively engages students in the learning process and helps them build links between the formalism and the conceptual aspects of quantum physics without compromising the technical content. Details of the development and assessment will be discussed. This work is supported by the National Science Foundation.
