Generalized Wigner-Yanase skew information and the affiliated inequality

Tue, 2022-11-01 11:00

Author(s): Ma-Cheng Yang and Cong-Feng Qiao

A family of skew information quantities is obtained, in which the well-known Wigner-Yanase skew information and quantum Fisher information stand as special cases. A transparent proof of convexity of the generalized skew information is given, implying a simple proof of the Wigner-Yanase-Dyson conject…

Success probability for postselective transformations of pure quantum states

Mon, 2022-10-31 11:00

Author(s): D. A. Kronberg

The situation is studied when an ensemble of pure quantum states is mapped onto another ensemble of pure quantum states. In general, this operation may not be done with unit probability. In this work, the bounds for success probability of such operation are provided, with closed-form expressions inv…

Security research on practical measurement-device-independent quantum key distribution

Fri, 2022-10-28 11:00

Author(s): Wei Li and Shengmei Zhao

The ideal measurement-device-independent quantum key distribution (MDI-QKD), which is immune to all detector side-channel attacks, is built on the Bell state measurement of two single-photon states. However, in practical MDI-QKD where phase-randomized weak coherent pulses (PR-WCPs) are used, the mis…

Applications of universal parity quantum computation

Thu, 2022-10-27 11:00

Author(s): Michael Fellner, Anette Messinger, Kilian Ender, and Wolfgang Lechner

We demonstrate the applicability of a universal gate set in the parity encoding, which is a dual to the standard gate model, by exploring several quantum gate algorithms such as the quantum Fourier transform and quantum addition. Embedding these algorithms in the parity encoding reduces the circuit …

Optimization of variational-quantum-eigensolver measurement by partitioning Pauli operators using multiqubit Clifford gates on noisy intermediate-scale quantum hardware

Thu, 2022-10-27 11:00

Author(s): Andrew Jena, Scott N. Genin, and Michele Mosca

Measuring the expectation value of Pauli operators on prepared quantum states is a fundamental task in a multitude of quantum algorithms. Simultaneously measuring sets of Pauli operators allows for fewer measurements and an overall speedup of the measurement process. Using results from coloring rand…

Quantum Fourier addition simplified to Toffoli addition

Thu, 2022-10-27 11:00

Author(s): Alexandru Paler

Quantum addition circuits are considered being of two types: (1) Toffoli-adder circuits which use only classical reversible gates (controlled-not and Toffoli), and (2) QFT-adder circuits based on the quantum Fourier transformation. We present a systematic translation of the QFT addition circuit into…

Entanglement between a trapped-ion qubit and a 780-nm photon via quantum frequency conversion

Wed, 2022-10-26 11:00

Author(s): John Hannegan, James D. Siverns, and Qudsia Quraishi

Future quantum networks will require the ability to produce matter-photon entanglement at photon frequencies not naturally emitted from the matter qubit. This allows for a hybrid network architecture, where these photons can couple to other tools and quantum technologies useful for tasks such as mul…

Author(s): V. Akshay, H. Philathong, E. Campos, D. Rabinovich, I. Zacharov, Xiao-Ming Zhang, and J. D. Biamonte

Variational quantum algorithms are the centerpiece of modern quantum programming. These algorithms involve training parametrized quantum circuits using a classical coprocessor, an approach adapted partly from classical machine learning. An important subclass of these algorithms, designed for combina…

Role of nonclassical temporal correlation in powering quantum random access codes

Tue, 2022-10-25 11:00

Author(s): Subhankar Bera, Ananda G. Maity, Shiladitya Mal, and A. S. Majumdar

We explore the fundamental origin of the quantum advantage behind random access code. We propose new temporal inequalities compatible with noninvasive-realist models and show that any nonzero quantum advantage of n↦1 random access code in the presence of shared randomness is equivalent to the violat…

Quantum error precompensation for quantum noisy channels

Tue, 2022-10-25 11:00

Author(s): Chengjie Zhang, Liangsheng Li, Guodong Lu, Haidong Yuan, and Runyao Duan

Most previous efforts on quantum error correction focused on either extending classical error-correction schemes to the quantum regime by performing a perfect correction on a subset of errors or seeking a recovery operation to maximize the fidelity between an input state and its corresponding output…

Quantum optical communication in the presence of strong attenuation noise

Author(s): Francesco Anna Mele, Ludovico Lami, and Vittorio Giovannetti

Is quantum communication possible over an optical fiber with transmissivity λ≤1/2? The answer is well known to be negative if the environment with which the incoming signal interacts is initialized in a thermal state. However, Lami et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 125, 110504 (2020)] found the quantum capac…

Quantum speed limits for observables

Mon, 2022-10-24 11:00

Author(s): Brij Mohan and Arun Kumar Pati

In the Schrödinger picture, the state of a quantum system evolves in time and the quantum speed limit describes how fast the state of a quantum system evolves from an initial state to a final state. However, in the Heisenberg picture the observable evolves in time instead of the state vector. Theref…

Author(s): Miao Cai and Keyu Xia (夏可宇)

Decoherence of a quantum system is one of the main difficulties for quantum information processing. Continuous dynamical decoupling has achieved great success in the improvement of the coherence of a quantum state but is difficult to optimize. Here we exploit the black-box optimization process in a …
