Quantum communication has been leading the way of many remarkable theoretical results and experimental tests in physics. In this context, quantum communication complexity (QCC) has recently drawn earnest research attention as a tool to optimize the amounts of transmitted qubits and energy that are required to implement distributed computational tasks. On this matter, we introduce a novel multi-user quantum fingerprinting protocol that is ready to be implemented with existing technology…

General theory of quantum fingerprinting network
This work provides a general model of quantum fingerprinting network, defining the relationship function $f^R$ and giving the corresponding decision rules and chooses the optimal parameters to minimize communication complexity in the case of asymmetric channels.


Observation of Quantum Fingerprinting Beating the Classical Limit.
A proof-of-principle experimental demonstration of a quantum fingerprinting protocol that for the first time surpasses the ultimate classical limit to transmitted information.
Quantum fingerprinting with coherent states and a constant mean number of photons
It is shown that there exist a large range of input sizes for which the protocol requires communication that can be more than two orders of magnitude smaller than a classical fingerprinting protocol, and given the expended resources, the protocol achieves a task that is provably impossible using classical communication only.
Efficient experimental quantum fingerprinting with wavelength division multiplexing
This work proposes to enhance the performance of the existing CQF protocol through applying wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) and simultaneous detection of multiple wavelength channels and shows that the new WDM-CZF protocol can potentially reduce the communication time significantly.
Experimental quantum fingerprinting with weak coherent pulses
A proof-of-concept experimental demonstration of a quantum fingerprinting system that is capable of transmitting less information than the best-known classical protocol and provides a first step in the development of experimental quantum communication complexity.
W-state Analyzer and Multi-party Measurement-device-independent Quantum Key Distribution
The results show that four-party MDI-QKD is feasible over 150 km standard telecom fiber with off-the-shelf single photon detectors, and takes an important step towards multi-party quantum communication and a quantum network.
One-qubit fingerprinting schemes
This paper considers the extreme scenario of performing fingerprinting where Alice and Bob both send either one bit or one qubit messages to the referee for the equality problem, and shows that it is easy to construct one-qubit fingerprinting schemes which can outperform any one- bit fingerprinting scheme.
Real-world two-photon interference and proof-of-principle quantum key distribution immune to detector attacks.
The first proof-of-principle implementation of a new quantum-key-distribution protocol that is immune to any such attack is reported, and the feasibility of controlled two-photon interference in a real-world environment is established.
Measurement-device-independent quantum key distribution.
The results show that long-distance quantum cryptography over say 200 km will remain secure even with seriously flawed detectors, and the key generation rate is many orders of magnitude higher than that based on full device independent QKD.
Experimental demonstration of quantum digital signatures using phase-encoded coherent states of light
This work demonstrates an experimental system, which distributes quantum signatures from one sender to two receivers and enables message sending ensured against forging and repudiation, and analyzes the security of the system in some typical scenarios.
Experimental quantum multimeter and one-qubit fingerprinting
There has been much recent effort to realize quantum devices in many different physical systems. Among them, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has been the first to demonstrate nontrivial quantum
