We report the first implementation of the von Neumann instantaneous measurements of nonlocal variables, which becomes possible due to technological achievements in creating hyperentangled photons. Tests of reliability and of the nondemolition property of the measurements have been performed with high precision, showing the suitability of the scheme as a basic ingredient of numerous quantum information protocols. The method allows us to demonstrate for the first time with strong measurements a…

Variable strength measurements of non-local observables

Quantum non-demolition measurements play an important role in quantum theory and many of its applications. In theory they are the most fundamental quantum measurements, but in practice their

Nonlocal single particle steering generated through single particle entanglement

It is proved that the single-particle entanglement gives rise to truly nonlocal effects at two faraway places, which opens the possibility of using the single’s entangled state for implementing truly non local task.

Entanglement consumption of instantaneous nonlocal quantum measurements

Relativistic causality has dramatic consequences on the measurability of nonlocal variables and poses the fundamental question of whether it is physically meaningful to speak about the value of

Nonlocal Measurements via Quantum Erasure.

A scheme for effectively generating the von Neumann Hamiltonian for nonlocal observables without the need to communicate and adapt is presented and it is shown how the protocol can be used to probe a version of Hardy's paradox with both weak and strong measurements.

Experimental joint weak measurement on a photon pair as a probe of Hardy's paradox.

In an implementation of Hardy's paradox, weakly measure the locations of two photons, the subject of the conflicting statements behind the paradox, and the resulting weak probabilities verify all of these statements but, at the same time, resolve the paradox.

Experimental proposal for performing nonlocal measurement of a product observable.

It is shown that the nonlocal measurement of the product observable, σzA⊗σzB, which has two degenerate eigenvalues, could be implemented in a deterministic way without violating relativistic causality.

Path-polarization hyperentangled and cluster states of photons on a chip

This work demonstrates the contextual use of path and polarization qubits propagating within an integrated quantum circuit and tests the properties of four-qubit linear cluster states built on both DOFs, and exploited them to perform the Grover's search algorithm according to the one-way quantum computation model.
