Finite-resource teleportation stretching for continuous-variable systems

16 Jul 2018  ·  Laurenza Riccardo, Braunstein Samuel L., Pirandola Stefano ·

We show how adaptive protocols of quantum and private communication through bosonic Gaussian channels can be simplified into much easier block versions that involve resource states with finite energy. This is achieved by combining the adaptive-to-block reduction technique devised earlier [S. Pirandola et al., Nat... Commun. 8, 15043 (2017)], based on teleportation stretching and relative entropy of entanglement, with an alternative simulation of Gaussian channels recently introduced by Liuzzo-Scorpo et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 119, 120503 (2017)]. In this way, we derive weak converse upper bounds for the secret-key capacity of phase-insensitive Gaussian channels, which approximate the optimal limit for infinite energy. Our results apply to both point-to-point and repeater-assisted private communications. read more
