Author(s)
Yu Xiang, Michael Mazurek, Joshua Bienfang, Michael Wayne, Carlos Abellan, Waldimar Amaya, Morgan Mitchell, Richard Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Qiongyi He, Martin Stevens, Lynden Shalm, Howard Wiseman
Schrödinger held that a local quantum system has some objectively real quantum state and no other (hidden) properties. He therefore took the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) phenomenon, which he generalized and called 'steering', to require nonlocal

Vectorizing Green's Identities

May 5, 2021
Author(s)
Alex Yuffa
Green's theorem and Green's identities are well-known and their uses span almost every branch of science and mathematics. In this paper, we derive a vector analogue of Green's three scalar identities and consider some of their uses. We also offer a number

Resource optimization of quantum-enabled channels using novel modulation schemes

April 21, 2021
Author(s)
Jabir Marakkarakath Vadakkepurayil, FNU Nur Fajar Rizqi Annafianto, Ivan Burenkov, Abdella Battou, Sergey Polyakov
We introduce new practical modulation schemes inspired by the quantum measurement. We experimentally show that our quantum-enabled communication system optimizes the combined resource efficiency (CRE) beyond the classical, shot-noise-limited CRE.
