The IBM-HBCU Quantum Center is a first-of-a-kind collaboration between IBM and a consortium of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) that seeks to address the lack of Black
Bayesian homodyne and heterodyne tomography.
This work introduces a complete Bayesian quantum state tomography workflow capable of inferring generic CV states measured by homodyne or heterodyne detection, with no assumption of Gaussianity.


Optimal measurements to access classical correlations of two-qubit states
We analyze the optimal measurements to access classical correlations in arbitrary two-qubit states. Two-qubit states can be transformed into the canonical forms via local unitary operations. For the
Quantum state estimation when qubits are lost: a no-data-left-behind approach
We present an approach to Bayesian mean estimation of quantum states using hyperspherical parametrization and an experiment-specific likelihood which allows utilization of all available data, even
Volume of the set of separable states . II
The problem of how many entangled or, respectively, separable states there are in the set of all quantum states is investigated. We study to what extent the choice of a measure in the space of
Direct estimations of linear and nonlinear functionals of a quantum state.
We present a simple quantum network, based on the controlled-SWAP gate, that can extract certain properties of quantum states without recourse to quantum tomography. It can be used as a basic
Bipartite entanglement of quantum states in a pair basis
It is found that negativity is a necessary and sufficient measure of entanglement for mixtures of states written in the same pair basis, which is remarkably relevant in many physical situations, including quantum optics.
Optimal, reliable estimation of quantum states
Accurately inferring the state of a quantum device from the results of measurements is a crucial task in building quantum information processing hardware. The predominant state estimation procedure,
Monte Carlo sampling from the quantum state space. I
High-quality random samples of quantum states are needed for a variety of tasks in quantum information and quantum computation. Searching the high-dimensional quantum state space for a global maximum
Average fidelity between random quantum states
We analyze mean fidelity between random density matrices of size N, generated with respect to various probability measures in the space of mixed quantum states: the Hilbert-Schmidt measure, the Bures
Random Bures mixed states and the distribution of their purity
Ensembles of random density matrices determined by various probability measures are analysed. A simple and efficient algorithm to generate at random density matrices distributed according to the
