AbstractQuantum information processing (QIP) opens new opportunities for high-performance computing, high-precision sensing, and secure communications. Among various QIP features, the entanglement is a unique one. To take full advantage of quantum resources, it will be necessary to interface quantum systems based on different encodings of information both discrete and continuous. The goal of this paper is to lay the groundwork for the development of a robust and efficient hybrid continuous variable-discrete variable (CV-DV) quantum network, enabling the distribution of a large number of entangled states over hybrid DV-CV multi-hop nodes in an arbitrary topology. The proposed hybrid quantum communication network (QCN) can serve as the backbone for a future quantum Internet, thus providing extensive long-term impacts on the economy and national security through QIP, distributed quantum computing, quantum networking, and distributed quantum sensing. By employing the photon addition and photon subtraction modules we describe how to generate the hybrid DV-CV entangled states and how to implement their teleportation and entanglement swapping through entangling measurements. We then describe how to extend the transmission distance between nodes in hybrid QCN by employing macroscopic light states, noiseless amplification, and reconfigurable quantum LDPC coding. We further describe how to enable quantum networking and distributed quantum computing by employing the deterministic cluster state concept introduced here. Finally, we describe how the proposed hybrid CV-DV states can be used in an entanglement-based hybrid QKD. Author

Optical probes of the quantum-entangled triplet-triplet state in a heteroacene dimerKhan, Souratosh; Mazumdar, Sumit; Univ Arizona, Dept Phys; Univ Arizona, Dept Chem & Biochem; Univ Arizona, Coll Opt Sci (AMER PHYSICAL SOC, 2018-10-10)The nature and extent of the spin-entanglement in the triplet-triplet biexciton with total spin zero in correlated-electron pi-conjugated systems continues to be an enigma. Differences in the ultrafast transient absorption spectra of free triplets versus the triplet-triplet can give a measure of the entanglement. This, however, requires theoretical understandings of transient absorptions from the optical spin-singlet, the lowest spin-triplet exciton, as well as from the triplet-triplet state, whose spectra are often overlapping and hence difficult to distinguish. We present a many-electron theory of the electronic structure of the triplet-triplet, and of complete wavelength-dependent excited state absorptions (ESAs) from all three states in a heteroacene dimer of interest in the field of intramolecular singlet fission. The theory allows direct comparisons of ESAs with existing experiments as well as experimental predictions, and gives physical understandings of transient absorptions within a pictorial exciton basis that can be carried over to other experimental systems.
Repeater-enhanced distributed quantum sensing based on continuous-variable multipartite entanglementXia, Yi; Zhuang, Quntao; Clark, William; Zhang, Zheshen; Univ Arizona, Coll Opt Sci; Univ Arizona, Dept Mat Sci & Engn (AMER PHYSICAL SOC, 2019-01-17)Entanglement is a unique resource for quantum-enhanced applications. When employed in sensing, shared entanglement between distributed quantum sensors enables a substantial gain in the measurement sensitivity in estimating global parameters of the quantum sensor network. Loss incurred in the distribution of entanglement, however, quickly dissipates the measurement-sensitivity advantage enjoyed by the entangled quantum sensors over sensors supplied with local quantum resources. Here we present a viable approach to overcome the entanglement-distribution loss and show that the measurement sensitivity enabled by entangled quantum sensors beats that afforded by the optimum local resource. Our approach relies on noiseless linear amplifiers (NLAs) to serve as quantum repeaters. We show that, unlike the outstanding challenge of building quantum repeaters to suppress the repeaterless bound for quantum key distribution, NLA-based quantum repeaters for distributed quantum sensing are realizable by available technology. As such, distributed quantum sensing would become an application instance that benefits from quantum repeaters.
Polarization Entanglement Quantum Key Distribution with Covert Classical CommunicationsGariano, John; Djordjevic, Ivan; Univ Arizona, Dept Elect & Comp Engn (IEEE, 2018)By using a covert classical communication channel for error reconciliation in QKD systems, higher SKRs are capable of being achieved. Assuming transmission over a 30km maritime channel, our previous results for the selection of optimum wavelength for use are re-examined.
