Are entanglement breaking channels of any use?

As the name suggests, an entanglement breaking channel $\Phi$ is such that $(Id \otimes \Phi)[\rho]$ is always separable, even when $\rho$ is entangled. Won't such channels be useless, as they destroy ...

A way to check if entanglement is increased or decreased

I was wondering if there is a way to check if the amount of entanglement is increased or decreased after a quantum operation without calculating the actual value. That is, it does not concern with the ...

Can the CCNR entanglement criterion be seen as a "natural" statement about entanglement breaking channels?

(The CCNR criterion) The computable cross-norm or realignment (CCNR) entanglement criterion, as discussed in (Gühne and Toth 2008), is based on the observation that any bipartite state $\rho$ can be ...

Why are entanglement breaking channels, defined as $\Phi(\rho)=\sum_a \operatorname{Tr}(\mu(a)\rho)\sigma_a$, entanglement breaking?

Define an entanglement breaking channel $\Phi$ as a channel (CPTP map) of the form $$\Phi(\rho) = \sum_a \operatorname{Tr}(\mu(a)\rho) \sigma_a\tag A$$ for some POVM $\{\mu(a)\}_a$ and states $\...
