We observe violation of a Bell inequality between the quantum states of two remote Yb+ ions separated by a distance of about 1 m with the detection loophole closed. The heralded entanglement of two ions is established via interference and joint detection of two emitted photons, whose polarization is entangled with each ion. The entanglement of remote qubits is also characterized by full quantum state tomography.

Quantum information: Violation of Bell's inequality in Si.
An entangled state of two spin qubits in silicon has been prepared and measured, yielding a violation of Bell's inequality that is the largest achieved in the solid state so far.
Relevance of a random choice in tests of Bell inequalities with two atomic qubits
It is pointed out that a loophole may exist in experimental tests of Bell inequalities using atomic qubits, due to possible errors in the angles defining the observables whose correlation isExpand
Loophole-free Bell test with one atom and less than one photon on average
We consider the entanglement between two internal states of a single atom and two photon number states describing either the vacuum or a single photon and thus containing, on average, less than oneExpand
Ion-photon entanglement and Bell inequality violation with ^138Ba^+
We report on the demonstration of ion–photon entanglement and Bell inequality violation in a system of trapped Ba138+ ions. Entanglement between the Zeeman sublevels of the ground state of a singleExpand
Quantum Teleportation Between Distant Matter Qubits
TLDR
A quantum bit stored in a single trapped ytterbium ion (Yb+) is teleported to a second Yb+ atom with an average fidelity of 90% over a replete set of states. Expand
Distribution of quantum information between an atom and two photons
This thesis documents the distribution of an entangled state between a single atom trapped in the mode of a high-finesse optical cavity and two subsequently emitted photons. The long atom trappingExpand
Hybrid quantum logic and a test of Bell’s inequality using two different atomic isotopes
TLDR
A deterministic quantum logic gate is used to generate a ‘hybrid’ entangled state of two trapped-ion qubits held in different isotopes of calcium, perform full tomography of the state produced, and make a test of Bell’s inequality with non-identical atoms. Expand
Photon-photon entanglement with a single trapped atom.
TLDR
The combination of cavity-QED and trapped atom techniques makes the protocol inherently deterministic--an essential step for the generation of scalable entanglement between the nodes of a distributed quantum network. Expand
Experimental violation of multipartite Bell inequalities with trapped ions.
TLDR
This work considers resource states for measurement-based quantum computation of between 3 and 7 ions and shows that all strongly violate a Bell-type inequality for graph states, where the criterion for violation is a sufficiently high fidelity. Expand
Bell-inequality tests with entanglement between an atom and a coherent state in a cavity
We study Bell inequality tests with entanglement between a coherent-state field in a cavity and a two-level atom. In order to detect the cavity field for such a test, photon on/off measurements andExpand

We report the measurement of a Bell inequality violation with a single atom and a single photon prepared in a probabilistic entangled state. This is the first demonstration of such a violation withExpand
Robust long-distance entanglement and a loophole-free bell test with ions and photons.
TLDR
The use of two-photon interference allows entanglement distribution free of interferometric sensitivity to the path length of the photons, and opens up the possibility of a loophole-free test of Bell's inequalities. Expand

The detection efficiency and the entanglement fidelity are high enough to allow in a next step the generation of entangled atoms at large distances, ready for a final loophole-free Bell experiment. Expand

Entanglement of two remote atomic qubits, each qubit consisting of two independent spin wave excitations, and reversible, coherent transfer of entanglement between matter and light represent important advances in quantum information science. Expand

TLDR
A proposal for an experimental realization of Bohm s spin-2 particle version of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen experiment is described, which will not only close the detector efficiency loophole, but in addition will permit enforcement of the locality condition. Expand

This work presents a scheme of a quantum repeater that connects a string of (imperfect) entangled pairs of particles by using a novel nested purification protocol, thereby creating a single distant pair of high fidelity. Expand
Violation of a Bell-like inequality in single-neutron interferometry
TLDR
This work measures correlations between two degrees of freedom (comprising spatial and spin components) of single neutrons; this removes the need for a source of entangled neutron pairs, which would present a considerable technical challenge. Expand
