We provide a necessary and sufficient condition for separability of Gaussian states of bipartite systems of arbitrarily many modes. The condition provides an operational criterion since it can be checked by simple computation. Moreover, it allows us to find a pure product-state decomposition of any given separable Gaussian state. We also show that all bipartite Gaussian states with nonpositive partial transpose are distillable. 

Gaussian entanglement witness and refined Werner-Wolf criterion for continuous variables

We use matched quantum entanglement witnesses to study the separable criteria of continuous variable states. The witness can be written as an identity operator minus a Gaussian operator. The

Propagation-induced entanglement revival

The practical implementation of free-space quantum information tasks requires entanglement to be sustained over long distances and in the presence of turbulent and noisy environments. The transverse

Entanglement induced by noncommutativity: anisotropic harmonic oscillator in noncommutative space

Quantum entanglement, induced by spatial noncommutativity, is investigated for an anisotropic harmonic oscillator. Exact solutions for the system are obtained after the model is re-expressed in terms

Numerical detection of Gaussian entanglement and its application to the identification of bound entangled Gaussian states

It is shown that the separability problem of Gaussian quantum states in continuous-variable quantum systems can be cast as an equivalent problem of determining the feasibility of a set of linear matrix inequalities and efficiently solved using existent numerical solvers.

Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen correlations between two uniformly accelerated oscillators

We consider the quantum correlations, i.e. the entanglement, between two systems uniformly accelerated with identical acceleration $a$ in opposite Rindler quadrants which have reached thermal

Cryptographic protocols in optical communication

It is shown that a necessary precondition for successful QKD is that sender and receiver can prove the presence of entanglement in the effective bipartite quantum state that is distributed between Alice and Bob and not on the particular classical post-processing techniques used by the legitimate users during the second phase of QKKD.

Entanglement production and decoherence-free subspace of two single-mode cavities embedded in a common environment

A system consisting of two identical single-mode cavities coupled to a common environment is investigated within the framework of algebraic dynamics. Based on the left and right representations of



Improvement on teleportation of continuous variables by photon subtraction via conditional measurement

We show that the recently proposed scheme of teleportation of continuous variables [S.L. Braunstein and H.J. Kimble, Phys. Rev. Lett. 80, 869 (1998)] can be improved by a conditional measurement of

Bound entanglement and continuous variables

It is pointed out that the "entanglement witnesses" and positive maps revealing the corresponding bound entanglement can easily be constructed and a new many parameter family of bound entangled states with positive partial transpose is obtained.

The Peres-Horodecki criterion of positivity under partial transpose is studied in the context of separability of bipartite continuous variable states and turns out to be a necessary and sufficient condition for separability.

Quantum Repeaters: The Role of Imperfect Local Operations in Quantum Communication

This work presents a scheme of a quantum repeater that connects a string of (imperfect) entangled pairs of particles by using a novel nested purification protocol, thereby creating a single distant pair of high fidelity.

Inseparable Two Spin- 1 2 Density Matrices Can Be Distilled to a Singlet Form

A quantum system is called inseparable if its density matrix cannot be written as a mixture of product states. In this Letter we apply the separability criterion, local filtering, and Bennett et al.

Transition probabilities between quasifree states

We obtain a general formula for the transition probabilities between any state of the C* algebra of the canonical commutation relations (CCR-algebra) and a squeezed quasifree state (Theorem III.1).

Distillability and partial transposition in bipartite systems

Institut fu¨r Theoretische Physik, Universit¨at Hannover, D-30167 Hannover, Germany(February 1, 2008)We study the distillability of a certain class of bipartitedensity operators which can be obtained

Mixed-State Entanglement and Distillation: Is there a “Bound” Entanglement in Nature?

It is shown that if a mixed state can be distilled to the singlet form it must violate partial transposition criterion [A. Peres, Phys. Rev. Lett. 76, 1413 (1996)]. It implies that there are two
