Macroscopic quantum states: Measures, fragility, and implementations
Large-scale quantum effects have always played an important role in the foundations of quantum theory. With recent experimental progress and the aspiration for quantum enhanced applications, the
Detecting the degree of macroscopic quantumness using an overlap measurement
We investigate how to experimentally detect a recently proposed measure to quantify macroscopic quantum superpositions [Phys. Rev. Lett.106, 220401
Coherence, asymmetry, and quantum macroscopicity
We investigate a measure of quantum coherence and its extension to quantify quantum macroscopicity. The coherence measure can also quantify the asymmetry of a quantum state with respect to a given
Coherent Superpositions of Photon Creation Operations and Their Application to Multimode States of Light
TLDR
A concise review of recent experimental results concerning the conditional implementation of coherent superpositions of single-photon additions onto distinct field modes shows the generation of a tunable degree of entanglement and peculiar correlations in the photon numbers and the quadratures of multimode, multiphoton, states of light.
Macroscopic Superpositions as Quantum Ground States.
TLDR
An upper bound on the energy gap of an arbitrary physical Hamiltonian provided that its ground state is a superposition of two well-distinguishable macroscopic "semiclassical" states is derived.
Quantum Apices: Identifying Limits of Entanglement, Nonlocality, & Contextuality
This work develops analytic methods to quantitatively demarcate quantum reality from its subset of classical phenomenon, as well as from the superset of general probabilistic theories. Regarding
Entangling Macroscopic Light States by Delocalized Photon Addition.
TLDR
A high degree of entanglement can in principle endure light states of macroscopic intensities and is expected to be particularly robust against losses.
Quantum metrology with generalized cat states
We show a general relationship between a superposition of macroscopically distinct states and sensitivity in quantum metrology. Generalized cat states are defined by using an index which extracts the
Quantum violation of classical physics in macroscopic systems
While quantum theory has been tested to an incredible degree on microscopic scales, quantum effects are seldom observed in our everyday macroscopic world. The curious results of applying quantum

Quantification of macroscopic quantum superpositions within phase space.
TLDR
This measure simultaneously quantifies two different kinds of essential information for a given quantum state in a harmonious manner: the degree of quantum coherence and the effective size of the physical system that involves the superposition.

Quantum superpositions and entanglement of thermal states at high temperatures and their applications to quantum-information processing
We study characteristics of superpositions and entanglement of thermal states at high temperatures and discuss their applications to quantum-information processing. We introduce thermal-state qubits
Optical hybrid approaches to quantum information
TLDR
This article reviews recent hybrid approaches to optical quantum information processing, in which both discrete and continuous degrees of freedom are exploited, potentially adding weak or measurement-induced nonlinearities to the toolbox.
Measures of macroscopicity for quantum spin systems
We investigate the notion of ‘macroscopicity’ in the case of quantum spin systems and provide two main results. Firstly, we motivate the quantum Fisher information as a measure of the macroscopicity
Elementary gates for quantum information with superposed coherent states
We propose an alternative way of implementing several elementary quantum gates for qubits in the coherent-state basis. The operations are probabilistic and employ single-photon subtractions as the
Polarization properties of macroscopic Bell states
The four two-photon polarization Bell states are one of the main instruments in the toolbox of quantum optics and quantum information. In our experiment we produce their multiphoton counterparts,
Macroscopicity of mechanical quantum superposition states.
We propose an experimentally accessible, objective measure for the macroscopicity of superposition states in mechanical quantum systems. Based on the observable consequences of a minimal,
