Experimental demonstration of fully contextual quantum correlations on an NMR quantum information processor
The existence of contextuality in quantum mechanics is a fundamental departure from the classical description of the world. Currently, the quest to identify scenarios which cannot be more contextual
Experimental demonstration of the violation of the temporal Peres-Mermin inequality using contextual temporal correlations and noninvasive measurements
We present a generalized quantum scattering circuit which can be used to perform non-invasive quantum measurements, and implement it on NMR qubits. Such a measurement is a key requirement for testing
Classical analog of quantum contextuality in spin-orbit laser modes
We experimentally observed the violation of Kujula-Dzhafarov noncontextuality inequalities by non-separable spin-orbit laser modes. Qubits are encoded on polarization and transverse modes of an
Experimental contextuality in classical light
The Klyachko, Can, Binicioglu, and Shumovsky (KCBS) inequality is an important contextuality inequality in three-level system, which has been demonstrated experimentally by using quantum states and the clear violations of the KCBS inequality and its geometrical form have been observed.
Quantum Correlations in NMR Systems
In conventional NMR experiments, the Zeeman energy gaps of the nuclear spin ensembles are much lower than their thermal energies, and accordingly exhibit tiny polarizations. Generally such low-purity
Hybrid quantum repeater for qudits
We present a "hybrid quantum repeater" protocol for the long-distance distribution of atomic entangled states beyond qubits. In our scheme, imperfect noisy entangled pairs of two qudits, i.e., two
The Negativity‐to‐Violation Map between Wigner Function and Quantum Contextuality Inequality for a Single Qudit
The relation between discrete Wigner function and quantum contextuality based on graph theory has been studied, following the work in [Nature 510,351(2014)]. To do this, non‐stabilizer projectors
Quantum contextuality as a topological property, and the ontology of potentiality
Quantum contextuality and its ontological meaning are very controversial issues, and they relate to other problems concerning the foundations of quantum theory. I address this controversy and stress


An experimental proposal for revealing contextuality in almost all qutrit states
An experimental test is proposed which is capable of revealing contextuality in all qutrit systems, except the completely mixed state, provided the authors choose the measurement basis appropriately, and the theoretical foundations of this test are reviewed.
Quantum contextuality of a qutrit state
We present a study of quantum contextuality of three-dimensional mixed states for the Klyachko-Can-Binicio\u{g}lu-Shumovsky (KCBS) and the Kurzy\'{n}ski-Kaszlikowski (KK) noncontextuality
Experimental test of state-independent quantum contextuality of an indivisible quantum system
We report a state-independent experimental test of quantum contextuality of a single-photon qutrit. The experimental results demonstrate violations of an inequality originally formulated by Yu and Oh
Demonstrating quantum contextuality of indistinguishable particles by a single family of noncontextuality inequalities
It is shown in a simple and systematic manner that with projective measurements alone, it is possible to demonstrate quantum contextuality for such systems of arbitrary Hilbert space dimensions, including those corresponding to a qubit.
Experimental observation of Hardy-like quantum contextuality.
This work experimentally observes the arguably cleanest form of contextuality in quantum theory by implementing a novel method for performing two sequential measurements on heralded photons and opens the door to a variety of fundamental experiments and applications.
State-independent experimental test of quantum contextuality in an indivisible system.
This experiment spotlights quantum contextuality in its most basic form, in a way that is independent of either the state or the tensor product structure of the system.
Testing contextuality on quantum ensembles with one clean qubit.
A protocol is presented to evaluate the expectation value of the correlations of measurement outcomes for ensembles of quantum systems, and the violation of an inequality that is satisfied by any noncontextual hidden-variables theory is experimentally demonstrated.
Contextuality of almost all qutrit states can be revealed with nine observables
We propose a test of quantum contextuality for a single three-level system that uses nine projective measurements. It has a form of an inequality that has to be satisfied by any non-contextual theory
State-independent proof of Kochen-Specker theorem with 13 rays.
An experimentally testable inequality involving only 13 observables that is satisfied by all noncontextual realistic models while being violated by all qutrit states facilitates a state-independent test of the quantum contextuality for an indivisible quantum system.
