We study how to exploit quantum effects to realize new information tasks without classical analog. From a pure theoretical point of view, we aim at establishing a series of laws governing the inter-conversion of the different information resources appearing in Quantum Information Theory, such as classical and quantum bits, secret bits and, especially, entanglement. We also study how to adapt all these theoretical results to what is feasible in the lab.
