The effective protection protocol of single photon state from photon loss and decoherence [article]

Lan Zhou, Yu-Bo Sheng
2016 arXiv   pre-print
By operating the protocol, the photon loss can be effectively decreased and the less entangled single photon state can be recovered to the maximally entangled state with some probability.  ...  We design an effect protocol for protecting the single-photon entanglement from photon loss and decoherence. The protocol only requires some auxiliary single photons and the linear optical elements.  ...  The photon noiseless linear amplification (NLA) is the powerful way to overcome the photon loss, which was first proposed by Ralph and Lund [24] .  ...

Efficient Concentration Protocols for the Single-Photon Entanglement State with Polarization Feature

Lan Zhou, Dan-Dan Wang, Xing-Fu Wang, Shi-Pu Gu, Yu-Bo Sheng
2017 Frontiers in Physics  
We propose two efficient entanglement concentration protocols (ECPs) for arbitrary less-entangled single-photon entanglement state, in which the photon qubit has the polarization feature.  ...  First, they can preserve the polarization feature of the photon qubit, while all the other existing ECPs for single photon state cannot achieve this goal.  ...  Different with the previous amplification protocols for the single photon qubits [70] [71] [72] [73] [74] , the protocol designed a coherent two-mode amplifier, and can realize the heralded noiseless  ...

Yury Kurochkin, Adarsh S. Prasad, A. I. Lvovsky
2014 Physical Review Letters  
Applying the annihilation operator to both modes, we increase the fraction of the two-photon component in the state, resulting in the increase of both squeezing and entanglement by about 50%.  ...  We experimentally demonstrate entanglement distillation of the two mode squeezed state.  ...  For example, a procedure involving noiseless amplification [31] in both modes has no fundamental limitation on the achievable entanglement increase factor.  ...
