The role of lowenergy electrons in the charging process of LISA test masses
PublicationThe estimate of the total electron yield is fundamental for our understanding of the testmass charging associated with cosmic rays in the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) Pathfinder mission and in the forthcoming gravitational wave observatory LISA. To unveil the role of low energy electrons in this process owing to galactic and solar energetic particle events, in this work we study the interaction of keV and subkeV...

Consistency of Quantum Computation and the Equivalence Principle.
PublicationThe equivalence principle, being one of the building blocks of general relativity, seems to be crucial for analysis of quantum effects in gravity. In this paper we consider the relation between the equivalence principle and the consistency of quantum information processing in gravitational field. We propose an analysis with a looped evolution consisting of steps both in the gravitational field and in the accelerated reference frame....

Time travel without paradoxes: Ring resonator as a universal paradigm for looped quantum evolutions
PublicationA ring resonator involves a scattering process where a part of the output is fed again into the input. The same formal structure is encountered in the problem of time travel in a neighborhood of a closed timelike curve (CTC). We know how to describe quantum optics of ring resonators, and the resulting description agrees with experiment. We can apply the same formal strategy to any looped quantum evolution, in particular to the...

Why Are LeftHanded GQuadruplexes Scarce?
PublicationGquadruplexes (G4s) are nucleic acid structures crucial for the regulation of gene expression and genome maintenance. While they hold promise as nanodevice components, achieving desired G4 folds requires understanding the interplay between stability and structural properties, like helicity. Although righthanded G4 structures dominate the experimental data, the molecular basis for this preference over lefthanded helicity is unclear....

Mechanical simulation of artificial gravity in torusshaped and cylindrical spacecraft
PublicationLarge deformations and stress analyses in two types of space structures that are intended for people to live in space have been studied in this research. The structure under analysis is assumed to rotate around the central axis to create artificial gravitational acceleration equal to the gravity on the Earth's surface. The analysis is fully dynamic, which is formulated based on the energy method by using the firstorder shear deformation...

Are quantum correlations symmetric?
PublicationWe provide operational definition of symmetry of entanglement: An entangled state contains symmetric entanglement if its subsystems can be exchanged (swapped) by means of local operations and classical communication. We show that in general states have asymmetric entanglement. This allows to construct nonsymmetric measure of entanglement, and a parameter that reports asymmetry of entanglement contents of quantum state. We propose...

A model of the response of the MGS6 gravity sensor to tilting
PublicationThe reliable interpretation of the measurements made by the Microg marine gravimetric system (MGS6) depends on how the temporary changes of the scale coefficients such as gravimeter scale factor, vertical crosscoupling (VCC) effect, tiltmeter cross and tiltmeter long are compensated for during the signal analysis. The listed coefficients cannot be determined from readings during the measurements or by analysing the final data....

Zeroknowledge convincing protocol on quantum bit is impossible
PublicationIt is one of fundamental features of quantum formalism that o n one hand it provides a new infor mation processing resources and on the other hand puts funda mental constraints on the processing of quantum information implying “nogo” theorems for cloni ng [1–3], bit commitment [4, 5] and deleting [6] in quantum theory. Here we ask about possibilit y of “zero knowledge” scenario which, for its simplicity, can be considered as...

Blurred quantum Darwinism across quantum reference frames
PublicationQuantum Darwinism describes objectivity of quantum systems via their correlations with their environmentinformation that hypothetical observers can recover by measuring the environments. However, observations are done with respect to a frame of reference. Here, we take the formalism of [Giacomini, CastroRuiz, & Brukner. Nat Commun 10, 494 (2019)], and consider the repercussions on objectivity when changing quantum reference...

Quantum randomness protected against detection loophole attacks
PublicationDevice and semideviceindependent private quantum randomness generators are crucial for applications requiring private randomness. However, they are vulnerable to detection inefficiency attacks and this limits severely their usage for practical purposes. Here, we present a method for protecting semideviceindependent private quantum randomness generators in prepareandmeasure scenarios against detection inefficiency attacks....

Anomalous decay of quantum correlations of quantumdot qubits
PublicationWe study the evolution of quantum correlations, quantified by the geometric discord, of two excitonic quantumdot qubits under the influence of the phonon environment. We show that the decay of these correlations differs substantially from the decay of entanglement. Instead of displaying suddendeathtype behavior, the geometric discord shows a tendency to undergo transitions between different types of decay, is sensitive to nonlocal...

Quantum Coherence as a Resource
PublicationThe coherent superposition of states, in combination with the quantization of observables, represents one of the most fundamental features that mark the departure of quantum mechanics from the classical realm. Quantum coherence in manybody systems embodies the essence of entanglement and is an essential ingredient for a plethora of physical phenomena in quantum optics, quantum information, solid state physics, and nanoscale thermodynamics....

Quantum entanglement in time
PublicationIn this paper we present a concept of quantum entanglement in time in a context of entangled consistent histories. These considerations are supported by presentation of necessary tools closely related to those acting on a space of spatial multipartite quantum states. We show that in similarity to monogamy of quantum entanglement in space, quantum entanglement in time is also endowed with this property for a particular history....

Purely quantum superadditivity of classical capacities of quantum multiple access channels
PublicationWe are studying classical capacities of quantum memoryless multiaccess channels in geometric terms and we are revealing a break of additivity of the Holevolike capacity. This effect is a purely quantum mechanical one, since, as we point out, the capacity regions of all classical memoryless multiaccess channels are additive. It is the first such effect revealed in the field of classical information transmission via quantum channels.

Quantum origins of objectivity
PublicationIn spite of all of its successes, quantum mechanics leaves us with a central problem: How does nature create a bridge from fragile quanta to the objective world of everyday experience? Here we find that a basic structure within quantum mechanics that leads to the perceived objectivity is a socalled spectrum broadcast structure. We uncover this based on minimal assumptions, without referring to any dynamical details or a concrete...

PublicationThe TBN bottomup strategy of building quantum devices from C60 and X@C60 MBBs is proposed as an extension of the Ellenbogen's “Matter as Software” idea to quantum information processing. The capped SW or DW CNT STM tip is considered as device for manipulating C60 and X@C60 molecules.

The Ellenbogen's "Matter as Software" Concept for Quantum Computer Implementation: III. Selection of X@C60 Molecular Building Blocks (MBBs) for TipBased Nanofabrication (TBN) of Trapped Neutral Atom Quantum Computing Devices
PublicationThe selection of guest atoms X of X@C60 MBBs for TBN of trapped neutral atom quantum computing devices is reported. Assuming the alloptical quantum computing as a final target stage, the two criteria are most important: the charge q accumulated on the C60 host must be as low as possible, and the atom X must have one or more available excited states within the band falling into the low energy window of neutral C60 molecule electronic...

Quantum security and theory of decoherence
PublicationWe sketch a relation between two crucial, yet independent, fields in quantum information research, viz. quantum decoherence and quantum cryptography. We investigate here how the standard cryptographic assumption of shielded laboratory, stating that data generated by a secure quantum device remain private unless explicitly published, is disturbed by the einselection mechanism of quantum Darwinism explaining the measurement process...

If Gravity is Geometry, is Dark Energy just Arithmetic?
PublicationArithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), as well as the calculus they imply, are nonunique. The examples of fourdimensional spaces, R^4 and (−L/2,L/2)^4, are considered where different types of arithmetic and calculus coexist simultaneously. In all the examples there exists a nonDiophantine arithmetic that makes the space globally Minkowskian, and thus the laws of physics are formulated in terms...

Hybrid nosignalingquantum correlations
PublicationFundamental investigations in nonlocality have shown that while the nosignaling principle alone is not sufficient to single out the set of quantum nonlocal correlations, local quantum mechanics and nosignaling together exactly reproduce the set of quantum correlations in the twoparty Bell scenario. Here, we introduce and study an intermediate hybrid nosignaling quantum set of nonlocal correlations that we term HNSQ in the...

The symmetric extendibility of quantum states
PublicationStudies on the symmetric extendibility of quantum states have become particularly important in the context of the analysis of oneway quantum measures of entanglement, and the distillability and security of quantum protocols. In this paper we analyze composite systems containing a symmetric extendible part, with particular attention devoted to the oneway security of such systems. Further, we introduce a new oneway entanglement...

Direct detection of quantum entanglement
PublicationBasing on positive maps separability criterion we propose the experimentally viable, direct detection of quantum entanglement. It is efficient and does not require any a priori knowledge about the state. For two qubits it provides a sharp (i.e., “if and only if”) separability test and estimation of amount of entanglement. We view this method as a new form of quantum computation, namely, as a decision problem with quantum data structure.

Quantum privacy witness
PublicationWhile it is usually known that the mean value of a single observable is enough to detect entanglement or its distillability, the counterpart of such an approach in the case of quantum privacy has been missing. Here we develop the concept of a privacy witness, i.e., a single observable that may detect the presence of the secure key even in the case of bound entanglement. Then we develop the notion of secretkey estimation based...

Multiacces quantum communication and product higher rank numerical range
PublicationIn the present paper we initiate the study of the product higher rank numerical range. The latter, being a variant of the higher rank numerical range, is a natural tool for study ing a construction of quantum error correction codes for multiple access channels. We review properties of this set and relate it to other numerical ranges, which were recently introduced in the literature. Further, the concept is applied to the construction...

Superadditivity of two quantum information resources
PublicationEntanglement is one of the most puzzling features of quantum theory and a principal resource for quantum information processing. It is well known that in classical information theory, the addition of two classical information resources will not lead to any extra advantages. On the contrary, in quantum information, a spectacular phenomenon of the superadditivity of two quantum information resources emerges. It shows that quantum...

Dynamical objectivity in quantum Brownian motion
PublicationClassical objectivity as a property of quantum states —a view proposed to explain the observerindependent character of our world from quantum theory, is an important step in bridging the quantumclassical gap. It was recently derived in terms of spectrum broadcast structures for small objects embedded in noisy photonlike environments. However, two fundamental problems have arisen: a description of objective motion and applicability...

Structure of the Resource Theory of Quantum Coherence
PublicationQuantum coherence is an essential feature of quantum mechanics which is responsible for the departure between the classical and quantum world. The recently established resource theory of quantum coherence studies possible quantum technological applications of quantum coherence, and limitations that arise if one is lacking the ability to establish superpositions. An important open problem in this context is a simple characterization...

Longdistance quantum communication over noisy networks without longtime quantum memory
PublicationThe problem of sharing entanglement over large distances is crucial for implementations of quantum cryptography. A possible scheme for longdistance entanglement sharing and quantum communication exploits networks whose nodes share EinsteinPodolskyRosen (EPR) pairs. In Perseguers et al. [Phys. Rev. A 78, 062324 (2008)] the authors put forward an important isomorphism between storing quantum information in a dimension D and transmission...
