Quantum teleportation of an unknown quantum state is one of the few communication tasks which has no classical counterpart. Usually the aim of teleportation is to send an unknown quantum state to a receiver. But is it possible in some way that the receiver’s state has more quantum discord than the sender’s state? We look at a scenario where Alice and Bob share a pure quantum state and Alice has an unknown quantum state. She performs joint measurement on her qubits and channel to prepare Bob’s… 

Remote State Design for Efficient Quantum Metrology with Separable and Non-Teleporting States

It is demonstrated that these separable states with the least quantumness can be made extremely useful in parameter estimation tasks, and further show even in the case of the shared channel inflicted with the amplitude damping noise and phase flip noise, there is a gain in Quantum Fisher information (QFI).



Quantum discord and the power of one qubit.

We use quantum discord to characterize the correlations present in the model called deterministic quantum computation with one quantum bit (DQC1), introduced by Knill and Laflamme [Phys. Rev. Lett.

Measures and applications of quantum correlations

This work gives an overview of the current quest for a proper understanding and characterisation of the frontier between classical and quantum correlations (QCs) in composite states, and focuses on various approaches to define and quantify general QCs, based on different yet interlinked physical perspectives.

Quantum discord for general two-qubit states: Analytical progress

We present a reliable algorithm to evaluate quantum discord for general two-qubit states, amending and extending an approach recently put forward for the subclass of X states. A closed expression for

Teleporting an unknown quantum state via dual classical and Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen channels.

An unknown quantum state \ensuremath{\Vert}\ensuremath{\varphi}〉 can be disassembled into, then later reconstructed from, purely classical information and purely nonclassical Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen

Quantum discord: a measure of the quantumness of correlations.

This work shows that absence of entanglement does not imply classicality, and considers the vanishing of discord as a criterion for the preferred effectively classical states of a system, i.e., the pointer states.

Can communication power of separable correlations exceed that of entanglement resource?

It is shown that separable states cannot exceed the efficiency of entangled states by means of “local operations plus classical communication” actions limited to 1 bit of forward communication.

Teleportation of qubit states through dissipative channels: Conditions for surpassing the no-cloning limit

We investigate quantum teleportation through dissipative channels and calculate teleportation fidelity as a function of damping rates. It is found that the average fidelity of teleportation and the

Photonic multipartite entanglement conversion using nonlocal operations

We propose a simple setup for the conversion of multipartite entangled states in a quantum network with restricted access. The scheme uses nonlocal operations to enable the preparation of states that

Optimal teleportation with a mixed state of two qubits.

We consider a single copy of a mixed state of two qubits and derive the optimal trace-preserving local operations assisted by classical communication such as to maximize the fidelity of teleportation

Experimental characterization of a non-local convertor for quantum photonic networks.

A quantum photonic gate is experimentally characterized that is capable of converting multiqubit entangled states while acting only on two qubits, and has the potential of being a flexible component in distributed quantum photonics networks.
