@article{Ptz2016QuantumNW, title={Quantum Nonlocality with Arbitrary Limited Detection Efficiency.}, author={Gilles P{\"u}tz and Anthony Martin and Nicolas Gisin and Djeylan Aktas and Bruno Fedrici and S{\'e}bastien Tanzilli}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={2016}, volume={116 1}, pages={ 010401 } }

The demonstration and use of nonlocality, as defined by Bell's theorem, rely strongly on dealing with nondetection events due to losses and detectors'inefficiencies. Otherwise, the so-called detection loophole could be exploited. The only way to avoid this is to have detection efficiencies that are above a certain threshold. We introduce the intermediate assumption of limited detection efficiency, that is, in each run of the experiment, the overall detection efficiency is lower bounded by η(min… Expand

Protecting nonlocality of multipartite states by feed-forward control

This paper uses a feed-forward control scheme to protect the nonlocality of the Bell and GHZ states against dissipation and finds that this protection scheme is very effective, and also finds that entanglement is relatively easier to be protected than nonLocality. Expand

The critical detection efficiency for closing the detection loophole of some modified Bell inequalities
