# Design and experimental performance of local entanglement witness operators

@article{Amaro2020DesignAE, title={Design and experimental performance of local entanglement witness operators}, author={David Amaro and Markus P. M{\"u}ller}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2020} }

Entanglement is a central concept in quantum information and a key resource for many quantum protocols. In this work we propose and analyze a class of entanglement witnesses that detect the presence of entanglement in subsystems of experimental multi-qubit stabilizer states. The witnesses we propose can be decomposed into sums of Pauli operators and can be efficiently evaluated by either two measurement settings only or at most a number of measurements that only depends on the size of the…

Scalable characterization of localizable entanglement in noisy topological quantum codes

- Computer ScienceNew Journal of Physics

This paper provides two different prescriptions to characterize noisy stabilizer states, including the surface and the color codes, in terms of localizable entanglement over a subset of qubits, and discusses in detail the methodology of obtaining a local unitary equivalent graph state from a stabilizer state.

Resource-Efficient Measurement-Device-Independent Entanglement Witness.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters

The theory of MDI-EW is extended to remove the necessity of prior knowledge about the two-qubit states to be witnessed and the robustness of this approach against noise is demonstrated by witnessing entanglement down to an entangled state fraction close to 0.4.

Implementation of a measurement-device-independent entanglement witness.

This work constructs an attack on the conventional entanglement witness process and demonstrates that a separable state can be falsely identified to be entangled, and designs and experimentally demonstrates a measurement-device-independent entangling witness for a variety of two-qubit states.

This work introduces the concept of measurement-device-independent entanglement witnesses (MDI-EWs), which allow one to demonstrateEntanglement of all entangled quantum states with untrusted measurement apparatuses, and shows how to systematically obtain such MDI-ews from standard entangler witnesses.

Estimating localizable entanglement from witnesses

Computing localizable entanglement for noisy many-particle quantum states is difficult due to the optimization over all possible sets of local projection measurements. Therefore, it is crucial to…

All these tests—based on the very same data—give rise to quantitative estimates in terms of entanglement measures, and if a test is strongly violated, one can also infer that the state was quantitatively very much entangled, in the bipartite and multipartite setting.
