Gaussian channel simulation is an essential paradigm in understanding the evolution of bosonic quantum states. It allows us to investigate how such states are influenced by the environment and how they transmit quantum information. This makes it an essential tool for understanding the properties of Gaussian quantum communication. Quantum teleportat...

Simulating physical systems on quantum devices is one of the most promising applications of quantum technology. Current quantum approaches to simulating open quantum systems are still practically challenging on NISQ-era devices, because they typically require ancilla qubits and extensive controlled sequences. In this work, we propose a hybrid quant...

Commercially impactful quantum algorithms such as quantum chemistry and Shor's algorithm require a number of qubits and gates far beyond the capacity of any existing quantum processor. Distributed architectures, which scale horizontally by networking modules, provide a route to commercial utility and will eventually surpass the capability of any si...

The amount of information that a noisy channel can transmit has been one of the primary subjects of interest in information theory. In this work we consider a practically-motivated family of optical quantum channels that can be implemented without an external energy source. We optimize the Holevo information over procedures that encode information...

We present an approach to entanglement purification on complex quantum network architectures, that is, how a quantum network built from repeaters with limited processing fidelity can purify and distribute entanglement between users. In particular, we explore how noisy gates, depolarizing channels, and finite memory storage time influence the perfor...

Quantum teleportation constitutes a fundamental tool for various applications in quantum communication and computation. However, state-of-the-art continuous-variable quantum teleportation is restricted to moderate fidelities and short-distance configurations. This is due to unavoidable experimental imperfections resulting in thermal decoherence dur...

The generation and control of entanglement in a quantum mechanical system is a critical element of nearly all quantum applications. Molecular systems are a promising candidate, with numerous degrees of freedom able to be targeted. However, knowledge of inter-system entanglement mechanisms in such systems is limited. In this work, we demonstrate the...

The maximum amount of entanglement achievable under passive transformations by continuous-variable states is called the entanglement potential. Recent work has demonstrated that the entanglement potential is upper-bounded by a simple function of the squeezing of formation, and that certain classes of two-mode Gaussian states can indeed saturate thi...

A quantum state can be correlated in either a classical or a quantum way. Conventionally, the total correlations within the quantum system are quantified in a geometrical way through distance-based expressions such as the relative entropy or the square-norm. In this work, we provide an alternative method to quantify total correlations through the s...

Decoherence is detrimental to quantum key distribution (QKD) over large distances. One of the proposed solutions is to use quantum repeaters, which divide the total distance between the users into smaller segments to minimise the effects of the losses in the channel. Here we introduce a measurement-device-independent protocol which uses high-dimens...

A quantum process is called non-Markovian when memory effects take place during its evolution. Quantum non-Markovianity is a phenomenon typically associated with the information back-flow from the environment to the principal system, however it has been shown that such an effect is not necessary. In particular, maximum quantum non-Markovianity can...

Quantum illumination is the task of determining the presence of an object in a noisy environment. We determine the optimal continuous-variable states for quantum illumination in the limit of zero object reflectivity. We prove that the optimal single-mode state is a coherent state, while the optimal two-mode state is the two-mode squeezed-vacuum sta...

We quantify the maximum amount of entanglement of formation (EoF) that can be achieved by continuous-variable states under passive operations, which we refer to as the EoF potential. Focusing, in particular, on two-mode Gaussian states we derive analytical expressions for the EoF potential for specific classes of states. For more general states, we...

Entanglement of formation is a fundamental measure that quantifies the entanglement of bipartite quantum states. This measure has recently been extended into multipartite states, taking the name α-entanglement of formation. In this work we follow an analogous multipartite extension for the Gaussian version of entanglement of formation, and focusing...

We determine the optimal continuous variable states for quantum illumination in the limit of zero object reflectivity.

We introduce the concept of the entanglement potential as the maximum amount of entanglement that can be achieved by continuous-variable states under passive operations. Focusing, in particular, on two-mode Gaussian states and measuring the entanglement through entanglement of formation, we derive analytical expressions for the entanglement potenti...

Controllable multipartite entanglement is a crucial element in quantum information processing. Here we present a scheme that generates switchable bipartite and genuine tripartite entanglement between microwave and optical photons via an optoelectromechanical interface, where microwave and optical cavities are coupled to a mechanical mode with contr...

In Gaussian quantum key distribution eavesdropping attacks are conventionally modeled through the universal entangling cloner scheme, which is based on the premise that the whole environment is under control of the adversary, i.e., the eavesdropper purifies the system. This assumption implies that the eavesdropper has either access to an identity (...

Upper bounds for private communication over quantum channels can be derived by adopting channel simulation, protocol stretching, and relative entropy of entanglement. All these ingredients have led to single-letter upper bounds to the secret-key capacity which can be directly computed over suitable resource states. For bosonic Gaussian channels, th...

Entanglement of formation quantifies the entanglement of a state in terms of the entropy of entanglement of the least entangled pure state needed to prepare it. An analytical expression for this measure exists only for special cases, and finding a closed formula for an arbitrary state remains an open problem. In this work we focus on two-mode Gauss...

Measures of entanglement can be employed for the analysis of numerous quantum information protocols. Due to computational convenience, logarithmic negativity is often the choice in the case of continuous-variable systems. In this work, we analyze a continuous-variable measurement-based entanglement distillation experiment using a collection of enta...

Gaussian channels are the typical way to model the decoherence introduced by the environment in continuous-variable quantum states. It is known that those channels can be simulated by a teleportation protocol using as a resource state either a maximally entangled state passing through the same channel, i.e., the Choi state, or a state that is entan...

Comparisons are also carried out quantitatively using Pearson correlation coefficient. In particular, it is shown that Fisher information in momentum space is...

We study the implications of quantum tunneling on information entropy measures (Shannon and Fisher), disequilibrium and LMC complexity in a Double Square Well Potential (DSWP), using the ammonia molecule as a test bed. We also apply a similar analysis to the Infinite Square Well Potential (ISWP) in order to compare the corresponding results with a...
