The method of quantum cloning is divided into two main categories: approximate and probabilistic quantum cloning. The former method is used to approximate an unknown quantum state deterministically, and the latter can be used to faithfully copy the state probabilistically. Thus far, many approximate cloning machines have been experimentally demonstrated, but probabilistic cloning remains an experimental challenge, as it requires more complicated networks and a higher level of precision control…

Quantum cloning machines and the applications
Sequential quantum cloning under real-life conditions
We consider a sequential implementation of the optimal quantum cloning machine of Gisin and Massar and propose optimization protocols for experimental realization of such a quantum cloner subject to
Duplicating classical bits with universal quantum cloning machine
It seems there is a large gap between quantum cloning and classical duplication since quantum mechanics forbid perfect copies of unknown quantum states. In this paper, we prove that a classical
Probabilistic quantum cloning of N quantum states
Probabilistically creating n perfect clones from m copies for one of N priori known quantum states with minimum failure probability is a long-standing problem. We provide a rigorous proof for the

An experimental demonstration of probabilistic cloning of arbitrary coherent states that clearly surpasses the no-cloning limit is reported, based on a hybrid linear amplifier that combines an ideal deterministic linear amplifier with a heralded measurement-based noiseless amplifier.

Creating n perfect clones from m copies of one of N prior known quantum states with minimum failure probability is a long-standing problem. We present a general geometrical form of the sufficient and
High-fidelity quantum cloning of two nonorthogonal quantum states via weak measurements
We propose a scheme to enhance the fidelity of symmetric quantum cloning machine using a weak measurement. By adjusting the intensity of weak measurement parameter $p$, we obtain the copies with
Probabilistic Cloning of two Single-Atom States via Thermal Cavity
We propose a cavity QED scheme for implementing the 1 → 2 probabilistic quantum cloning (PQC) of two single-atom states. In our scheme, after the to-be-cloned atom and the assistant atom passing
Probabilistic cloning of a single-atom state via cavity QED
We propose a scheme for probabilistically cloning a two-level state of an atom to a polarization photon via cavity QED system combined with linear optics elements. By choosing appropriate parameters,
Random quantum evolution
It is obtained that universal random evolutions change the generic unknown pure states into their orthogonal states approximately and the von Neumann entropy with constants is distorted.
