Why is measurement needed in teleportation?

One of the postulates of QC is, that measurements in every circuit can be postponed or never performed in a circuit while achieving the same functionality of the circuit (at least this the way I ...

Real-life examples of classical-quantum channels

In quantum information theory, classical-quantum channels are considered to be channels whose input is the realizations $x\in\mathcal{X}$ of a classical random variable to a quantum state $\rho_x^B$, ...

BB84 protocol over LiFi

The question is already explained in the title, but I'm curious regarding the possibility to adopt the BB84 protocol over LiFi (in theory). Could it be possible or are there some limitations, such as ...

What is the quantum bandwidth of a planar array of noisy qubits, assuming free classical communication?

A common task to perform during quantum computation on the surface code is moving qubits from one place to another. There are standard ways to do this within the surface code, but I was wondering what ...

Quantum teleportation: second classical bit for removing entanglement?

I have read about how Alice can send Bob a qubit $\alpha |0\rangle + \beta|1\rangle$ if they share an EPR pair. This gives an initial state: $(\alpha |0\rangle + \beta|1\rangle) \otimes (\frac{1}{\...

Applying CNOT with local operations and two EPR pairs

Suppose Alice and Bob hold one qubit each of an arbitrary two-qubit state $|\psi \rangle$ that is possibly entangled. They can apply local operations and are allowed classical communication. Their ...
