We introduce a modification of the standard entanglement swapping protocol where the generation of entanglement between two distant modes is realized and verified using only local optical measurements. We show, indeed, that a simple condition on the purity of the initial state involving also an ancillary mode is sufficient to guarantee the success of the protocol by local measurements {M. Abdi \textit{et al.}, Phys. Rev. Lett. \textbf{109}, 143601 (2012)}]. We apply the proposed protocol to a…

Multipartite entanglement swapping and mechanical cluster states

It is shown that detecting the optical parts of optomechanical cavities may efficiently swap entanglement into their mechanical modes, creating cluster states up to 5 modes under suitable cryogenic conditions.

Entangling two distant non‐interacting microwave modes

A protocol able to prepare two remote and initially uncorrelated microwave modes in an entangled stationary state, which is certifiable using only local optical homodyne measurements id proposed. The

Continuous-Variable Entanglement Swapping

A collection of entanglement swapping schemes which incorporate a non-Gaussian ingredient and the benefits of such schemes are noted and the need to further study and develop such schemes is motivated by highlighting requirements of a continuous-variable repeater.

Hybrid photonic loss resilient entanglement swapping

It can be shown that there is an optimal amplitude value of the coherent state, when allowing for such loss, and it is demonstrated that a small amount of loss mismatch does not destroy the overall entanglement.

Large distance continuous variable communication with concatenated swaps

The radiation–pressure interaction between electromagnetic fields and mechanical resonators can be used to efficiently entangle two light fields coupled to the same mechanical mode. We analyze the

Generation of Strong Mechanical–Mechanical Entanglement by Pump Modulation

The implementation of strong quantum entanglement between two macroscopic mechanical oscillators is a longstanding pursued goal in fundamental research or applied science. Here, an effective scheme

Entanglement of two hybrid optomechanical cavities composed of BEC atoms under Bell detection

By applying the Bell measurement to the output optical field modes, it is shown how the remote entanglement between two BECs, two moving mirrors, and BEC-mirror modes in different optomechanical cavity can be generated.

CV-MDI quantum key distribution via satellite

The results show that useful space-based quantum key generation rates between two ground stations are possible even when the relay satellite is held by an adversary, and the cost in key rate incurred by altering the status of the satellite from trustworthy to untrustworthy is presented.

Tripartite entanglement dynamics and entropic squeezing of a three-level atom interacting with a bimodal cavity field

In this paper, we study the interaction between a Λ-type three-level atom and two quantized electromagnetic fields which are simultaneously injected in a bichromatic cavity surrounded by a Kerr

Constraints on Gaussian Error Channels and Measurements for Quantum Communication

This work shows that, for any Gaussian measurement, if l A + l B + n A + n B ≥ 1 then the effective total measurement is separable and unsuitable for teleportation or entanglement swapping of arbitrary input states.
