Quantum entanglement

  title={Quantum entanglement},
  author={Ryszard Horodecki and Paweł Horodecki and Michal Horodecki and Karol Horodecki},
All our former experience with application of quantum theory seems to say that what is predicted by quantum formalism must occur in the laboratory. But the essence of quantum formalism— entanglement, recognized by Einstein, Podolsky, Rosen, and Schrödinger—waited over 70 years to enter laboratories as a new resource as real as energy. This holistic property of compound quantum systems, which involves nonclassical correlations between subsystems, has potential for many quantum processes… 

0 Entanglement in Two and Three Quantum Mechanical Systems

Entanglement is one of most peculiar characteristic of Quantum Mechanics (probably the other most mentioned is the particle tunneling through a barrier) because it entails correlations that

Quantum Entanglement : An Exploration of a Weird Phenomenon 1

In this paper, quantum entanglement, which is a quantum mechanical phenomenon where particles can have influence on others regardless of the distance between them, is deeply explored. A historical

Quantum entanglement, an unknown “spooky action” that confused scientists like Einstein, has become one of the research hotspots in quantum mechanics. Based on the technique, applications distributed

Measuring entanglement entropy in a quantum many-body system

Making use of the single-site-resolved control of ultracold bosonic atoms in optical lattices, two identical copies of a many-body state are prepared and interfered to directly measure quantum purity, Rényi entanglement entropy, and mutual information.

Mediation of entanglement and nonlocality of a single fermion

This work proposes a method to create entanglement between two distant fermionic particles, which never interact directly by using a third fermion to mediate the correlation, and demonstrates that bipartite maximally entangled states can be generated with an efficiency of about 56%.

Entanglement certification from theory to experiment

The most commonly used quantifiers of entanglement are discussed and the state-of-the-art detection and certification methods are surveyed, including their respective underlying assumptions, from both a theoretical and an experimental point of view.

Qubit-Qutrit (2 ⊗ 3) Quantum Systems: an Investigation of Some Quantum Correlations Under Collective Dephasing

We revisit qubit-qutrit quantum systems under collective dephasing and answer some of the questions which have not been asked and addressed so far in the literature. In particular, we examine the

Quantum violation of classical physics in macroscopic systems

While quantum theory has been tested to an incredible degree on microscopic scales, quantum effects are seldom observed in our everyday macroscopic world. The curious results of applying quantum



Free-Space distribution of entanglement and single photons over 144 km

Quantum Entanglement is the essence of quantum physics and inspires fundamental questions about the principles of nature. Moreover it is also the basis for emerging technologies of quantum

Decoherence and its implications in quantum computation and information transfer

Decoherence is the physical process by which the classical world - the world of common sense - emerges from its quantum underpinnings. This physical process refers to the loss of phase coherence

General Paradigm for Distilling Classical Key From Quantum States

It is demonstrated that all quantum cryptographic protocols can be recast in a way which looks like entanglement theory, with the only change being that instead of distilling Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) pairs, the parties distill private states.

It is argued that it is nevertheless misleading to view entanglement as a key resource for quantum‐computational power, as it is necessary for any quantum algorithm to offer an exponential speed‐up over classical computation.

Linking Classical and Quantum Key Agreement: Is There "Bound Information"?

It is proved that a quantum state between two parties is entangled if and only if the classical random variables resulting from optimal measurements provide some mutual classical information between the parties.

Entanglement simulations of Shor's algorithm

We demonstrate that, in the case of Shor's algorithm for factoring, highly mixed states will allow efficient quantum computation, indeed factorization can be achieved efficiently with just one

Computational potency of quantum many-body systems

We establish a framework which allows one to systematically construct novel schemes for measurement-based quantum computation. The technique utilizes tools from many-body physics - based on finitely

Entanglement Properties of Composite Quantum Systems

We present here an overview of our work concerning entanglement properties of composite quantum systems. The characterization of entanglement, i.e. the possibility to assert if a given quantum state

This work discusses new work that shows how entanglement of the Bell-type can be observed in continuous variable, homodyne measurement schemes, and contrasts the various classical limits which emerge from the different ways of assessing teleportation.
