We propose a straightforward experimental protocol to test whether qubit-environment entanglement is generated during pure dephasing of a qubit. The protocol is implemented using only measurements and operations on the qubit—it does not involve the measurement of the system-environment state of inte...

Quasiperiodic systems offer an appealing intermediate between long-range ordered and genuine disordered systems, with unusual critical properties. One-dimensional models that break the so-called self-dual symmetry usually display a mobility edge, similarly as truly disordered systems in a dimension ...

Semiquantum key distribution protocols are designed to allow two parties to establish a shared secret key, secure against an all-powerful adversary, even when one of the users is restricted to measuring and preparing quantum states in one single basis. While interesting from a theoretical standpoint...

The states of three-qubit systems split into two inequivalent types of genuine tripartite entanglement, namely, the Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger (GHZ) type and the $W$ type. A state belonging to one of these classes can be stochastically transformed only into a state within the same class by local op...

Quantum correlations between parts of a composite system most clearly reveal themselves through entanglement. Designing, maintaining, and controlling entangled systems is very demanding, which raises the stakes for understanding the efficacy of entanglement-free, yet quantum correlations, exemplifie...

Multiplexing is crucial for the data-carrying capacity of information communication systems. Orbital angular momentum (OAM) with a topological charge $ℓ$ ($ℓ$ integer) provides a degree of freedom to realize multiplexing. In this Letter, we report an experimental implementation of OAM multiplexed co...

Magic-state distillation is a resource intensive subroutine for quantum computation. The ratio of noisy input states to output states with an error rate at most $ε$ scales as $O\mathbf{(}{\mathrm{log}}^{γ}(1/ε)\mathbf{)}$ [S. Bravyi and J. Haah, Magic-state distillation with low overhead, Phys. Rev....

We experimentally demonstrate the generation of a three-photon discrete-energy-entangled $W$ state using multiphoton-pair generation by spontaneous four-wave mixing in an optical fiber. We show that, by making use of prior information on the photon source, we can verify the state produced by this so...

The Heisenberg and Mandelstam-Tamm time-energy uncertainty relations are
analyzed. The conlusion resulting from this analysis is that within the Quantum
Mechanics of Schr\"{o}dinger and von Neumann, the status of these relations can
not be considered as the same as the status of the position-momentum
uncertainty relations, which are rigorous. The conclusion is that the
time--energy uncertainty relations can not be considered as universally valid.

We propose a measure of entanglement that can be computed for any pure state
of an $M$-qubit system. The entanglement measure has the form of a distance
that we derive from an adapted application of the Fubini-Study metric. This
measure is invariant under local unitary transformations and defined as trace
of a suitable metric that we derive, the entanglement metric $\tilde{g}$.
Furthermore, the analysis of the eigenvalues of $\tilde{g}$ gives information
about the robustness of entanglement.
