Nonstandard protocols for joint remote preparation of a general quantum state and hybrid entanglement of any dimension

5 hours 59 min ago

Author(s): Nguyen Ba An, Le Thanh Dat, and Jaewan Kim

Joint remote state preparation (JRSP) is a useful way to securely transfer quantum information encoded in quantum states between distant places without physically sending the states themselves. In this paper we study JRSP of the most general D-dimensional quantum state called quDit state, with arbit...

Tuning the coupling between superconducting resonators with collective qubits

Fri, 2018-10-19 12:00

Author(s): Qi-Ming Chen, Yu-xi Liu, Luyan Sun, and Re-Bing Wu

By coupling a collection of two-level artificial atoms simultaneously to two superconducting resonators, we propose a quantum switch that can tune the resonator-resonator coupling strength from zero to a large value proportional to the qubit number. This process is realized by preparing the qubits i...

Quantum annealing of the $p$-spin model under inhomogeneous transverse field driving

Thu, 2018-10-18 12:00

Author(s): Yuki Susa, Yu Yamashiro, Masayuki Yamamoto, Itay Hen, Daniel A. Lidar, and Hidetoshi Nishimori

We solve the mean-field-like p-spin Ising model under a spatiotemporal inhomogeneous transverse field to study the effects of inhomogeneity on the performance of quantum annealing. We previously found that the problematic first-order quantum phase transition that arises under the conventional homoge...

Entanglement of two noninteracting qubits via a mesoscopic system

Thu, 2018-10-18 12:00

Author(s): Maryam Sadat Mirkamali, David G. Cory, and Joseph Emerson

We propose a method for entangling two noninteracting qubits by measuring their parity indirectly through an intermediate mesoscopic system. The protocol is designed to require only global control and course-grained collective measurement of the mesoscopic system along with local interactions betwee...

Author(s): Mirko Amico, Oleg L. Berman, and Roman Ya. Kezerashvili

A theoretical framework to investigate the time evolution of the quantum entanglement due to the dynamical Lamb effect between two and three superconducting qubits coupled to a coplanar waveguide in the presence of different sources of dissipation is developed. Guidelines on how to proceed in the N-...

Author(s): Chenyang Li, Marcos Curty, Feihu Xu, Olinka Bedroya, and Hoi-Kwong Lo

Silicon photonics holds the promise of the miniaturization of quantum communication devices. Recently, silicon chip optical transmitters for quantum key distribution (QKD) have been built and demonstrated experimentally. Nonetheless, these silicon chips suffer substantial phase- and polarization-dep...

Ancilla-assisted linear optical Bell measurements and their optimality

Author(s): Andrea Olivo and Frédéric Grosshans

In the last decade Grice [Phys. Rev. A 84, 042331 (2011)] and Ewert and van Loock [Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 140403 (2014)] found linear optical networks achieving near-unit efficiency unambiguous Bell state discrimination, when fed with increasingly complex ancillary states. However, except for the vac...

Secret key rate of a continuous-variable quantum-key-distribution scheme when the detection process is inaccessible to eavesdroppers

Mon, 2018-10-15 12:00

Author(s): Ryo Namiki, Akira Kitagawa, and Takuya Hirano

We have developed a method to calculate a secret key rate of a continuous-variable quantum-key-distribution scheme using four coherent states and postselection for a general model of Gaussian attacks. We assume that the transmission line and detection process are described by a pair of Gaussian chan...

Experimentally detecting a quantum change point via the Bayesian inference

Mon, 2018-10-15 12:00

Detecting a change point is a crucial task in statistics that has been recently extended to the quantum realm. A source state generator that emits a series of single photons in a default state suffers an alteration at some point and starts to emit photons in a mutated state. The problem consists in ...

Randomness quantification of coherent detection

Mon, 2018-10-15 12:00

Author(s): Hongyi Zhou, Pei Zeng, Mohsen Razavi, and Xiongfeng Ma

Continuous-variable quantum cryptographic systems, including random number generation and key distribution, are often based on coherent detection. The essence of the security analysis lies in the randomness quantification. Previous analyses employ a semiquantum picture, where the strong local oscill...

Deconstruction and conditional erasure of quantum correlations

Mon, 2018-10-15 12:00

Author(s): Mario Berta, Fernando G. S. L. Brandão, Christian Majenz, and Mark M. Wilde

We define the deconstruction cost of a tripartite quantum state on systems ABE as the minimum rate of noise needed to apply to the AE systems, such that there is negligible disturbance to the marginal state on the BE systems, while the system A of the resulting state is locally recoverable from the ...

Preservation of quantum nonbilocal correlations in noisy entanglement-swapping experiments using weak measurements

Mon, 2018-10-15 12:00

Author(s): Shashank Gupta, Shounak Datta, and A. S. Majumdar

A tripartite quantum network is said to be bilocal if two independent sources produce a pair of bipartite entangled states. Quantum nonbilocal correlation emerges when the central party which possesses two particles from two different sources performs Bell-state measurement on them and nonlocality i...

Uhlmann fidelities from tensor networks

Fri, 2018-10-12 12:00

Author(s): Markus Hauru and Guifre Vidal

Given two states |ψ〉 and |ϕ〉 of a quantum many-body system, one may use the overlap or fidelity |〈ψ|ϕ〉| to quantify how similar they are. To further resolve the similarity of |ψ〉 and |ϕ〉 in space, one can consider their reduced density matrices ρ and σ on various regions of the system and compute th...

Nonlocality of all quantum networks

Fri, 2018-10-12 12:00

Author(s): Ming-Xing Luo

The multipartite correlations derived from local measurements on some composite quantum systems are inconsistent with those reproduced classically. This inconsistency is known as the quantum nonlocality and shows a milestone in the foundations of quantum theory. Still, it is NP hard to decide a nonl...

Joint quantum-state and measurement tomography with incomplete measurements

Author(s): Adam C. Keith, Charles H. Baldwin, Scott Glancy, and E. Knill

Estimation of quantum states and measurements is crucial for the implementation of quantum information protocols. The standard method for each is quantum tomography. However, quantum tomography suffers from systematic errors caused by imperfect knowledge of the system. We present a procedure to simu...

Author(s): F. Albarrán-Arriagada, J. C. Retamal, E. Solano, and L. Lamata

Machine learning employs dynamical algorithms that mimic the human capacity to learn, where the reinforcement learning ones are among the most similar to humans in this respect. On the other hand, adaptability is an essential aspect to perform any task efficiently in a changing environment, and it i...

Non-Gaussianity and entropy-bounded uncertainty relations: Application to detection of non-Gaussian entangled states

Wed, 2018-10-10 12:00

Author(s): Kyunghyun Baek and Hyunchul Nha

We suggest an improved version of the Robertson–Schrödinger uncertainty relation for canonically conjugate variables by taking into account a pair of characteristics of states: non-Gaussianity and mixedness quantified by using fidelity and entropy, respectively. This relation is saturated by both Ga...

Author(s): Shounak Datta and A. S. Majumdar

Nonlocal advantage of quantum coherence (NAQC) or steerability of local quantum coherence is a strong nonlocal resource based on coherence complementarity relations.
