Over the past few years, a new field of high research intensity has emerged that blends together concepts from gravitational physics and quantum computing. Known as relativistic quantum information, or RQI, the field aims to understand the relationship between special and general relativity and quantum information. Since the original discoveries of Hawking radiation and the Unruh effect, it has been known that incorporating the concepts of quantum theory into relativistic settings can produce… 
Quantum information processing and relativistic quantum fields
It is shown that an ideal measurement of a one-particle wave packet state of a relativistic quantum field in Minkowski spacetime enables superluminal signalling. The result holds for a measurement
Fisher information as a probe of spacetime structure: Relativistic quantum metrology in (A)dS.
Relativistic quantum metrology studies the maximal achievable precision for estimating a physical quantity when both quantum and relativistic effects are taken into account. We study the relativistic
Boundary effects on quantum entanglement and its dynamics in a detector-field system
A bstractIn this paper we analyze an exactly solvable model consisting of an inertial Unruh-DeWitt detector which interacts linearly with a massless quantum field in Minkowski spacetime with a
Single electron relativistic clock interferometer
Although time is one of the fundamental notions in physics, it does not have a unique description. In quantum theory time is a parameter ordering the succession of the probability amplitudes of a
Entanglement dynamics in a Kerr spacetime
We consider the entanglement dynamics between two-level atoms in a rotating black-hole background. In our model the two-atom system is envisaged as an open system coupled with a massless scalar field
Decoupling of Information Propagation from Energy Propagation
Information and energy are concepts central to our understanding of nature. Their relevance, in physics, ranges from fundamental physics, e.g., in black hole physics, all the way to future quantum
Accessible and inaccessible quantum coherence in relativistic quantum systems
The quantum coherence of a multipartite system is investigated when some of the parties are moving with uniform acceleration and the analysis is carried out using the single mode approximation. Due
Enhanced quantum teleportation in the background of Schwarzschild spacetime by weak measurements
It is commonly believed that the fidelity of quantum teleportation in the gravitational field would be degraded due to the heating up by the Hawking radiation. In this paper, we point out that the
Estimation of gravitational acceleration with quantum optical interferometers
The precise estimation of the gravitational acceleration is important for various disciplines. We consider making such an estimation using quantum optics. A Mach-Zehnder interferometer in an "optical
Entropy Production in the Expanding Universe
The spacetime is basically curved and dynamical. Thus our knowledge of universe must be extended to a dynamical curved spacetime to understand the nature of the universe. The field theory in the
