The classical-information capacity of lossy bosonic channels is studied, with emphasis on the far-field free space channel. 1 Classical capacity A prominent landmark in the extension of Shannon information theory to the quantum domain is the realization that any particular physical system can store only a finite amount of information. As a consequence, the(More)
We present a security analysis of the recently introduced Quantum Private Query (QPQ) protocol. It is a cheat sensitive quantum protocol to perform a private search on a classical database. It allows a user to retrieve an item from the database without revealing which item was retrieved, and at the same time it ensures data privacy of the database (the(More)
A complete weak-degradability analysis of one-mode Gaussian Bosonic channels is performed. A new set of channels which have null quantum capacity is identified. Due to their relatively simple structure Gaussian channels [1] provide an ideal theoretical playground for the study of quantum communication protocols [2]. Bounds and, in some cases, explicit(More)
