Among various multipartite entangled states, Dicke states stand out because their entanglement is maximally persistent and robust under particle losses. Although much attention has been attracted for their potential applications in quantum information processing and foundational studies, the characterization of Dicke states remains as a challenging task in experiments. Here, we propose efficient and practical protocols for verifying arbitrary $n$-qubit Dicke states in both adaptive and…

Self-testing multipartite entangled states through projections onto two systems

A simple, and potentially unifying, approach is investigated: combining projections onto two-qubit spaces (projecting parties or degrees of freedom) and then using maximal violation of the tilted CHSH inequalities, which allows one to obtain self-testing of Dicke states and partially entangled GHZ states with two measurements per party.
