  journal={Physical Review A},
Violation of Mermin inequalities is tested on the 5-qubit IBM quantum computer. For 3, 4 and 5 parties, quantum states that violate the corresponding Mermin inequalities are constructed using quantum circuits on superconducting qubits. Measurements on different basis are included as additional final gates in the circuits. The experimental results obtained using the quantum computer show violation of all Mermin inequalitites, with a clear degradation of the results in the 5 qubit case. Though…

Preparation and measurement of three-qubit entanglement in a superconducting circuit

Deterministic production of three-qubit Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger (GHZ) states with fidelity of 88 per cent is demonstrated, demonstrating the first step of basic quantum error correction, namely the encoding of a logical qubit into a manifold of GHZ-like states using a repetition code.

Experimental confirmation of Bell's theorem is reported, using the recently developed method to observe three-photon entanglement, or ‘Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger’ (GHZ) states, and finds the results of the fourth experiment to be in agreement with the quantum prediction and in striking conflict with local realism.
