    Efficient Scheme for Perfect Collective Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Steering

    Full text link
    A practical scheme for the demonstration of perfect one-sided device-independent quantum secret sharing is proposed. The scheme involves a three-mode optomechanical system in which a pair of independent cavity modes is driven by short laser pulses and interact with a movable mirror. We demonstrate that by tuning the laser frequency to the blue (anti-Stokes) sideband of the average frequency of the cavity modes, the modes become mutually coherent and then may collectively steer the mirror mode to a perfect Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen state. The scheme is shown to be experimentally feasible, it is robust against the frequency difference between the modes, mechanical thermal noise and damping, and coupling strengths of the cavity modes to the mirror.Comment: 9 pages, 4 figure

    Koszul differential graded algebras and BGG correspondence

    The concept of Koszul differential graded algebra (Koszul DG algebra) is introduced. Koszul DG algebras exist extensively, and have nice properties similar to the classic Koszul algebras. A DG version of the Koszul duality is proved. When the Koszul DG algebra AA is AS-regular, the Ext-algebra EE of AA is Frobenius. In this case, similar to the classical BGG correspondence, there is an equivalence between the stable category of finitely generated left EE-modules, and the quotient triangulated category of the full triangulated subcategory of the derived category of right DG AA-modules consisting of all compact DG modules modulo the full triangulated subcategory consisting of all the right DG modules with finite dimensional cohomology. The classical BGG correspondence can derived from the DG version.Comment: 29 page

    Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox and quantum steering in pulsed optomechanics

    Full text link
    We describe how to generate an Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox between a mesoscopic mechanical oscillator and an optical pulse. We find two types of paradox, defined by whether it is the oscillator or the pulse that shows the effect Schrodinger called "steering". Only the oscillator paradox addresses the question of mesoscopic local reality for a massive system. In that case, EPR's "elements of reality" are defined for the oscillator, and it is these elements of reality that are falsified (if quantum mechanics is complete). For this sort of paradox, we show that a thermal barrier exists, meaning that a threshold level of pulse-oscillator interaction is required for a given thermal occupation n_0 of the oscillator. We find there is no equivalent thermal barrier for the entanglement of the pulse with the oscillator, nor for the EPR paradox that addresses the local reality of the optical system. Finally, we examine the possibility of an EPR paradox between two entangled oscillators. Our work highlights the asymmetrical effect of thermal noise on quantum nonlocality.Comment: 9 pages, 7 figure
