Abstract We derive an experimentally testable criterion for the teleportation of quantum states of continuous variables. This criterion is especially relevant to the recent experiment of Furusawa et al. where an input—output fidelity of 0.58 ± 0.02 was achieved for optical coherent stages. Our derivation demonstrates that fidelities greater than 1/2 could not have been achieved through the use of a classical channel alone; quantum entanglement was a crucial ingredient in the experiment. 

Simple proof of the quantum benchmark fidelity for continuous-variable quantum devices

The present method enables us to produce a quantum-domain criterion associated with a given set of measured fidelities and presents an alternative proof of the classical limit based on the familiar notions of state-channel duality and partial transposition.


Recently, it has been argued that all presently performed continuous variable quantum teleportation experiments could be explained using a local hidden variable theory. In this paper, we study a

Continuous-variable quantum teleportation through bosonic memory channel

We put forward a scheme for quantum teleportation of continuous-variable Gaussian states using, as a quantum channel, a two-mode squeezed vacuum interacting with a thermal environment showing memory

Fidelity criterion for quantum-domain transmission and storage of coherent states beyond the unit-gain constraint.

We generalize the experimental success criterion for quantum teleportation (memory) in continuous-variable quantum systems to be suitable for a non-unit-gain condition by considering attenuation

An alternative approach to the derivation of benchmarks for quantum channels, such as memory or teleportation channels, is presented, using the concept of effective entanglement and the verification thereof, which demands very few experimental resources.

Quantum benchmark via an uncertainty product of canonical variables.

An uncertainty-relation-type quantum benchmark for continuous-variable (CV) quantum channels that works with an input ensemble of Gaussian-distributed coherent states and homodyne measurements is presented that can verify the quantum-domain performance for all one-mode Gaussian channels.

High-fidelity continuous-variable quantum teleportation toward multistep quantum operations

It is shown that during teleportation, one of a pair of entangled photons are subjected to a measurement such that the second photon of the entangled pair acquires the polarization of the initial photon.

The recent result of Bennett of teleportation of an unknown quantum state is obtained in the framework of nonlocal measurements proposed by Aharonov and Albert, and the latter method is generalized to the teleportation of a quantum state of a system with continuous variables.
