Quantifying the performance of approximate teleportation and quantum error correction via symmetric 2-PPT-extendible channels

Thu, 2023-01-26 11:00

Author(s): Tharon Holdsworth, Vishal Singh, and Mark M. Wilde

The ideal realization of quantum teleportation relies on having access to a maximally entangled state; however, in practice, such an ideal state is typically not available and one can instead only realize an approximate teleportation. With this in mind, we present a method to quantify the performanc…

Experimental violation of the Leggett-Garg inequality in a three-level trapped-ion system

Wed, 2023-01-25 11:00

Author(s): Tianxiang Zhan, Chunwang Wu, Manchao Zhang, Qingqing Qin, Xueying Yang, Han Hu, Wenbo Su, Jie Zhang, Ting Chen, Yi Xie, Wei Wu, and Pingxing Chen

Leggett-Garg inequality (LGI) is used to detect whether the macroscopic superposition state exists. Classical systems obey the LGI, but quantum systems may violate it. In the multilevel system, different state update rules determine different upper bounds of LGI. In this work, we experimentally test…

Exponential data encoding for quantum supervised learning

Mon, 2023-01-23 11:00

Author(s): S. Shin, Y. S. Teo, and H. Jeong

Reliable quantum supervised learning of a multivariate function mapping depends on the expressivity of the corresponding quantum circuit and measurement resources. We introduce exponential-data-encoding strategies that are hardware-efficient and optimal among all nonentangling Pauli-encoded schemes,…

Thermal devices powered by generalized measurements with indefinite causal order

Mon, 2023-01-23 11:00

Author(s): Pedro R. Dieguez, Vinicius F. Lisboa, and Roberto M. Serra

A quantum-controlled device may produce a scenario in which two general quantum operations can be performed in such a way that it is not possible to associate a definite order for the operation's application. Such an indefinite causal order can be explored to produce nontrivial effects in quantum th…

Experimental detection of quantum steerability based on the critical radius in an all-optical system

Fri, 2023-01-20 11:00

Author(s): Xiao-Gang Fan, Fa Zhao, Huan Yang, Zhi-Yong Ding, Dong Wang, and Liu Ye

Quantum steering is the ability that one system affects another one without delay by performing local measurements. During the past few years, the research on quantum steering has been verified in a number of experiments by the choices of measurements. But this research cannot detect all steerable s…

Continuous simultaneous measurement of position and momentum of a particle

Fri, 2023-01-20 11:00

Author(s): Filip Gampel and Mariusz Gajda

We formulate a model of a quantum particle continuously monitored by detectors measuring simultaneously its position and momentum. We implement the postulate of wave-function collapse by assuming that upon detection the particle is found in one of the meters' states chosen as a discrete subset of co…

Partition-function estimation: Quantum and quantum-inspired algorithms

Fri, 2023-01-20 11:00

Author(s): Andrew Jackson, Theodoros Kapourniotis, and Animesh Datta

We present two algorithms, one quantum and one classical, for estimating partition functions of quantum spin Hamiltonians. The first is a DQC1 (deterministic quantum computation with one clean qubit) algorithm. The second, for real temperatures, achieves performance comparable to a state-of-the-art …

Success probability and performance optimization in non-Gaussian continuous-variable quantum teleportation

Tue, 2023-01-17 11:00

Author(s): Chandan Kumar and Shikhar Arora

Non-Gaussian operations have been shown to enhance the fidelity of continuous-variable quantum teleportation. However, a disadvantage of these non-Gaussian operations is that they are probabilistic in nature. In this article we study the trade-off between teleportation fidelity and success probabili…

Entanglement of mechanical modes in a doubly resonant optomechanical cavity of a correlated emission laser

Fri, 2023-01-13 11:00

Author(s): Mekonnen Bekele, Tewodros Yirgashewa, and Sintayehu Tesfa

We explore the extent of the induced entanglement of the mechanical modes that can be attributed to the transfer of coherence from two-mode cavity radiation in a doubly resonant optomechanical cavity. It is expected that this scheme can support a generation of mechanical oscillations with a robust d…

Entanglement structures in quantum field theories: Negativity cores and bound entanglement in the vacuum

Wed, 2023-01-11 11:00

Author(s): Natalie Klco, D. H. Beck, and Martin J. Savage

The many-body entanglement between two finite (size-d) disjoint vacuum regions of noninteracting lattice scalar field theory in one spatial dimension, i.e., a (dA×dB)mixed Gaussian continuous variable system, is locally transformed into a tensor-product core of (1A×1B)mixed entangled pairs. Accessib…

Author(s): Wassil Sennane, Jean-Philip Piquemal, and Marko J. Rančić

In this paper we calculate the ground-state energy of benzene under spatial deformations by using the variational quantum eigensolver. The primary goal of the study is to estimate the feasibility of using quantum computing Ansätze on near-term devices to solve problems with a large number of orbital…

Direct measurement of quantum Fisher information

Author(s): Xingyu Zhang, Xiao-Ming Lu, Jing Liu, Wenkui Ding, and Xiaoguang Wang

In the adiabatic perturbation theory, Berry curvature is related to the generalized force, and the quantum metric tensor is linked with energy fluctuation. While the former is tested with numerous numerical results and experimental realizations, the latter is less considered. Quantum Fisher informat…

Problem-size-independent angles for a Grover-driven quantum approximate optimization algorithm

Mon, 2023-01-09 11:00

Author(s): David Headley and Frank K. Wilhelm

The quantum approximate optimization algorithm (QAOA) requires that circuit parameters are determined that allow one to sample from high-quality solutions to combinatorial optimization problems. Such parameters can be obtained using either costly outer-loop optimization procedures and repeated calls…

Entanglement transition through Hilbert-space localization

Mon, 2023-01-09 11:00

Author(s): Quancheng Liu and Klaus Ziegler

We study Hilbert-space localization of the many-body dynamics due to ergodicity breaking and analyze this effect in terms of the entanglement entropy and the entanglement spectrum. We find a transition from a regime driven by quantum tunneling to a regime that is dominated by boson-boson interaction…

Very recently, dissipative coupling was discovered, which develops and broadens methods for controlling and utilizing light-matter interactions. Here, we propose a scheme to generate the tripartite W state in a dissipatively coupled system, where one qubit and two resonators simultaneously interact …

Author(s): Shuanping Du and Zhaofang Bai

Necessary and sufficient conditions for arbitrary multimode (pure or mixed) Gaussian states to be equivalent under incoherent Gaussian operations are derived. We show that two Gaussian states are incoherent equivalence if and only if they are related by incoherent unitaries. This builds the counterp…

Author(s): François Verdeil and Yannick Deville

Quantum state tomography (QST) aims at estimating a quantum state from averaged quantum measurements made on copies of that state. Most quantum algorithms rely on QST at some point and it is a well-explored topic in the literature, mostly for mixed states. In this paper we focus on the QST of a pure…
