Protocol and quantum circuits for realizing deterministic entanglement concentration
Abstract
Entanglement concentration can be achieved in a deterministic fashion [Morikoshi, Phys. Rev. Lett. 84, 3189 (2000); Phys. Rev. A 64, 022316 (2001)]. We present a protocol for deterministic extraction of an EinsteinPodolskyRosen pair from two partially entangled pairs via local operations and classical communication. This protocol consists of a generalized measurement described by a positive operatorvalued measure (POVM), oneway classical communication, and a corresponding unitary operation or a choice between the two pairs. Based on the theory of majorization, we explicitly construct the required POVM, which can be realized by performing a unitary operation in the extended space and a conventional Von Neuman orthogonal measurement. By decomposing the evolution process from the initial state to the final state, we construct the quantum circuits for realizing the unitary operation with quantum Toffoli gates, and thus provide a physical means to realize the deterministic entanglement concentration. Our method for constructing quantum circuits differs from the usual method based on decomposition of unitary matrices, and is convenient for a large class of quantum processes involving generalized measurements.

We develop and study protocols for deterministic remote entanglement generation using quantum feedback, without relying on an entangling Hamiltonian. In order to formulate the most effective experimentally feasible protocol, we introduce the notion of averagesense locally optimal feedback protocols, which do not require realtime quantum state estimation, a difficult component of realtime quantum feedback control. We use this notion of optimality to construct two protocols that can deterministically create maximal entanglement: a semiclassical feedback protocol for lowefficiency measurements and a quantum feedback protocol for highefficiency measurements. The latter reduces to direct feedback in the continuoustime limit, whose dynamics can bemore »Cited by 5

Asymmetric quantum telecloning of dlevel systems and broadcasting of entanglement to different locations using the 'manytomany' communication protocol
We propose a generalization of quantum teleportation: the socalled manytomany quantum communication of the information of a dlevel system from N spatially separated senders to M>N receivers situated at different locations. We extend the concept of asymmetric telecloning from qubits to ddimensional systems. We investigate the broadcasting of entanglement by using local 1{yields}2 optimal universal asymmetric Pauli machines and show that the maximal fidelities of the two final entangled states are obtained when symmetric machines are applied. Cloning of entanglement is studied using a nonlocal optimal universal asymmetric cloning machine and we show that the symmetric machine optimally copies themore » 
Experimental quantum 'Guess my Number' protocol using multiphoton entanglement
We present an experimental demonstration of a modified version of the entanglementassisted 'Guess my Number' protocol for the reduction of communication complexity among three separated parties. The results of experimental measurements imply that the separated parties can compute a function of distributed inputs by exchanging less classical information than by using any classical strategy. And the results also demonstrate the advantages of entanglementenhanced communication, which is very close to quantum communication. The advantages are based on the properties of GreenbergerHorneZeilinger states. 
Multiparty quantumkeydistribution protocol without use of entanglement
We propose a quantumkeydistribution protocol that enables three parties to agree at once on a shared common random bit string in the presence of an eavesdropper without use of entanglement. We prove its unconditional security and analyze the key rate. 
Protocol for hybrid entanglement between a trapped atom and a quantum dot
We propose a quantum optical interface between an atomic and solidstate system. We show that quantum states in a single trapped atom can be entangled with the states of a semiconductor quantum dot through their common interaction with a classical laser field. The interference and detection of the resulting scattered photons can then herald the entanglement of the disparate atomic and solidstate quantum bits. We develop a protocol that can succeed despite a significant mismatch in the radiative characteristics of the two matterbased qubits. We study in detail a particular case of this interface applied to a single trapped {supmore »
