Distilling and protecting the single-photon entangled state [article]

Lan Zhou, Yu-Bo Sheng
2014 arXiv   pre-print
These protocols only require one pair of less-entangled single-photon entangled state and some auxiliary single photons, which makes them economical.  ...  We propose two efficient entanglement concentration protocols (ECPs) for arbitrary less-entangled single-photon entanglement (SPE).  ...  Both they not only can distill the maximally entangled singlephoton entangled state from arbitrary less-entangled single-photon entangled state, but also can protect its polarization characteristics.  ...

Distilling single-photon entanglement from photon loss and decoherence [article]

Yu-Bo Sheng, Lan Zhou
2013 arXiv   pre-print
Here we present a practical protocol for distilling the single-photon entanglement from both photon loss and decoherence.  ...  With the help of some local single photons, the probability of single photon loss can be decreased and the less-entangled state can also be recovered to maximally entangled state simultaneously.  ...  The single-photon entangled state can be prepared with the single-photon source and the 50:50 beam splitter (BS).  ...
