Quantum Experiments on Space Scale (QUESS), a collaboration between the Chinese Academy of Science and IQOQI, with the purpose to establish a quantum space to ground link for the very first time. Therefore, a Chinese satellite, equipped with photon sources, will be launched in the end of 2016. This satellite will be used for demonstrating quantum communication protocols and investigate fundamental questions of nature. The task of IQOQI is to provide Optical Ground Stations (OGS) in Europe to be utilized as a receiving station for the intended experiment. Within this thesis a proper receiver for such experiment should be realized.
