Experimental semi-device-independent certification of entangled measurements
MetadataShow full item record
Certifying the entanglement of quantum states with Bell inequalities allows one to guarantee the security of quantum information protocols independently of imperfections in the measuring devices. Here, we present a similar procedure for witnessing entangled measurements, which play a central role in many quantum information tasks. Our procedure is termed semi-device-independent, as it uses uncharacterized quantum preparations of fixed Hilbert space dimension. Using a photonic setup, we experimentally certify an entangled measurement using only measurement statistics. We also apply our techniques to certify unentangled but nevertheless inherently quantum measurements.
