The concept of self-testing (or rigidity) refers to the fact that for certain Bell inequalities the maximal violation can be achieved in an essentially unique manner. In this work we present a family of Bell inequalities which are maximally violated by multiple inequivalent quantum realisations. We completely characterise the quantum realisations achieving the maximal violation and we show that each of them requires a maximally entangled state of two qubits. This implies the existence of a new…

Self-testing quantum states via nonmaximal violation in Hardy's test of nonlocality
Self-testing protocols enable certification of quantum devices without demanding full knowledge about their inner workings. A typical approach in designing such protocols is based on observing
Effects of measurement dependence on 1-parameter family of Bell tests
This paper establishes the relationship among measurement dependence, guessing probability, and the maximum value of 1-PFB correlation function that Eve can fake, and finds the range of the parameter in which it is more difficult for Eve to fake the maximum quantum violation in 1- PFB inequality than in Chain inequality.

Near-Maximal Two-Photon Entanglement for Optical Quantum Communication at 2.1μm
Owing to a reduced solar background and low propagation losses in the atmosphere, the 2- to 2.5- µ m waveband is a promising candidate for daylight quantum communication. This spectral region also
Quantum Correlations in the Minimal Scenario
In the minimal scenario of quantum correlations, two parties can choose from two observables with two possible outcomes each. Probabilities are specified by four marginals and four correlations. The

Robust self-testing of steerable quantum assemblages and its applications on device-independent quantum certification
This work considers assemblages violating several paradigmatic Bell inequalities and obtains the robust self-testing statement for each scenario, and is device-independent (DI), i.e., no assumption is made on the shared state and the measurement devices involved.
Mutually unbiased bases and symmetric informationally complete measurements in Bell experiments
The first example of an extremal point of the quantum set of correlations that admits physically inequivalent quantum realizations is presented, and the results elaborately demonstrate the foundational and practical relevance of the two most important discrete Hilbert space structures to the field of quantum nonlocality.

Sequential random access codes and self-testing of quantum measurement instruments
This work considers a three-party prepare-transform-measure scenario in which the simplest QRAC is implemented twice in sequence based on the same physical system, and derives optimal trade-off relations between the two QRACs.

Self-testing nonprojective quantum measurements in prepare-and-measure experiments
It is shown that the experimental data imply that the implemented measurements are very close to certain ideal three- and four-outcome qubit POVMs and hence non-projective, and open interesting perspective for semi–device-independent certification of quantum devices.
Device-independent characterization of quantum instruments
It is shown that device-independent techniques based on the violation of Bell inequalities can be extended to the characterization of quantum instruments with post-measurement states that are not fully determined by the Kraus operators but also depend on input states.
A relevant two qubit Bell inequality inequivalent to the CHSH inequality
We computationally investigate the complete polytope of Bell inequalities for two particles with small numbers of possible measurements and outcomes. Our approach is limited by Pitowsky's connection
Self-testing multipartite entangled states through projections onto two systems
A simple, and potentially unifying, approach is investigated: combining projections onto two-qubit spaces (projecting parties or degrees of freedom) and then using maximal violation of the tilted CHSH inequalities, which allows one to obtain self-testing of Dicke states and partially entangled GHZ states with two measurements per party.
Maximal nonlocality from maximal entanglement and mutually unbiased bases, and self-testing of two-qutrit quantum systems
This work proposes a novel family of Bell inequalities which exhibit precisely these properties, and whose maximal quantum violation can be computed analytically, and shows that in the three-outcome case their Bell inequality can be used to self-test the maximally entangled state of two-qutrits and three mutually unbiased bases at each site.
