Driven-dissipative topological phases in parametric resonator arrays

2024-03-27T13:57:45+01:00Tags: , |

Authors: Gomez-Leon, Alvaro; Ramos, Tomas; Gonzalez-Tudela, Alejandro; Porras, Diego Journal: QUANTUM Publication date: 2023/05/23 DOI: Abstract: We study the phenomena of topological amplification in arrays of parametric oscillators. We find two phases of topological amplification, both with directional transport and exponential gain with the number of sites, and one of them featuring squeezing. We also [...]

Detecting entanglement of unknown states by violating the Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt inequality

Authors: Cortes-Vega, J.; Barra, J. F.; Pereira, L.; Delgado, A. Journal: QUANTUM INFORMATION PROCESSING Publication date: 2023/05/09 DOI: 10.1007/s11128-023-03953-y Abstract: Entangled states play a fundamental role in quantum mechanics and are at the core of many contemporary applications, such as quantum communication and quantum computing. Therefore, determining whether a state is entangled or not is [...]

Training a quantum measurement device to discriminate unknown non-orthogonal quantum states

2024-03-27T13:57:24+01:00Tags: |

Authors: Concha, D.; Pereira, L.; Zambrano, L.; Delgado, A. Journal: SCIENTIFIC REPORTS Publication date: 2023/05/08 DOI: 10.1038/s41598-023-34327-0 Abstract: Here, we study the problem of decoding information transmitted through unknown quantum states. We assume that Alice encodes an alphabet into a set of orthogonal quantum states, which are then transmitted to Bob. However, the quantum channel [...]
