Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering using quantum correlations in non-Gaussian entangled states Academic Article uri icon


  • In view of the increasing importance of non-Gaussian entangled states in quantum information protocols like teleportation and violations of Bell inequalities, the steering of continuous variable non-Gaussian entangled states is investigated. Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering for Gaussian states may be demonstrated through the violation of the Reid inequality involving products of the inferred variances of noncommuting observables. However, for arbitrary states the Reid inequality is not always necessary because of the higher-order correlations in such states. One then needs to use the entropic steering inequality. We examine several classes of currently important non-Gaussian entangled states, such as the two-dimensional harmonic oscillator, the photon-subtracted two-mode squeezed vacuum, and the NOON state, in order to demonstrate the steering property of such states. A comparative study of the violation of the Bell inequality for these states shows that the entanglement present is more easily revealed through steering compared to Bell violation for several such states. 2014 American Physical Society.
