We evaluate the performance of coherent frequency-shift keying (CFSK) [1], [2] alphabets for communication on quantum channels. We show that, contrarily to what previously thought, the square-root-measurement (SRM) is sub-optimal for discriminating CFSK states. Furthermore, we compute the maximum information transmission rate of the CFSK alphabet, observing that it employs at least as many frequency modes as the signal states, and compare it with standard phase-shift-keying. Finally, we introduce a discretized CFSK alphabet with higher mode-efficiency, exhibiting comparable error-probability performance with respect to CFSK and better rate performance. Our results suggest the existence of a tradeoff between the CFSK reduced error-probability and its mode efficiency.

Abstract

We evaluate the performance of coherent frequency-shift keying (CFSK) [1], [2] alphabets for communication on quantum channels. We show that, contrarily to what previously thought, the square-root-measurement (SRM) is sub-optimal for discriminating CFSK states. Furthermore, we compute the maximum information transmission rate of the CFSK alphabet, observing that it employs at least as many frequency modes as the signal states, and compare it with standard phase-shift-keying. Finally, we introduce a discretized CFSK alphabet with higher mode-efficiency, exhibiting comparable error-probability performance with respect to CFSK and better rate performance. Our results suggest the existence of a tradeoff between the CFSK reduced error-probability and its mode efficiency.
