Abstract

We perform a theoretical investigation into how a two-mode squeezed vacuum state, which has undergone photon loss, can be stored and purified using noiseless amplification with a collection of solid-state qubits. The proposed method may be used to probabilistically increase the entanglement between the two parties sharing the state. The proposed amplification step is similar in structure to a set of quantum scissors. However, in this work the amplification step is realized by a state transfer from an optical mode to a set of solid-state qubits, which act as a quantum memory. We explore two different applications, the generation of entangled many-qubit registers and the construction of quantum repeaters for long-distance quantum key distribution.
