Optimal procedures play an important role in quantum information. It turns out that some naturally occurring processes as emission of light from an atom can realize optimal transformations. Here we study how arbitrary symmetric states of a number of d-level systems can be cloned using a multilevel atomic system. It is shown that optimality is always ensured even though the output number of systems is probabilistic. 
Fast implementation of the 1→3 orbital state quantum cloning machine
We present a scheme to implement a 1→3 orbital state quantum cloning machine assisted by quantum Zeno dynamics. By constructing shortcuts to adiabatic passage with transitionless quantum driving, we
Optical implementations of the optimal phase-covariant quantum cloning machine
We propose two simple implementations of the optimal symmetric 1{yields}2 phase-covariant cloning machine for qubits. The first scheme is designed for qubits encoded into polarization states of
Photonic quantum simulator for unbiased phase covariant cloning
We present the results of a linear optics photonic implementation of a quantum circuit that simulates a phase covariant cloner, using two different degrees of freedom of a single photon. We
Quantum cloning of mixed states in symmetric subspaces
