Entanglement concentration with quantum nondemolition Hamiltonians
MetadataShow full item record
We devise and examine two procrustean entanglement concentration schemes using quantum nondemolition (QND) interaction Hamiltonians in the continuous variable regime, applicable for light, for atomic ensembles or in a hybrid setting. We thus expand the standard entanglement distillation toolbox for use of a much more general, versatile, and experimentally feasible interaction class. The first protocol uses Gaussian ancillary modes and a non-Gaussian postmeasurement, the second a non-Gaussian ancillary mode and a Gaussian postmeasurement. We explicitly calculate the density matrix elements of the non-Gaussian mixed states resulting from these protocols using an elegant Wigner-function-based method in a numerically efficient manner. We then quantify the entanglement increase calculating the logarithmic negativity of the output state and discuss and compare the performance of the protocols.
