Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Using the quantum scissors operation for entanglement distillation and a single-rail Bell state projection for non-Gaussian entanglement swapping, we show a multiplexed quantum repeater scheme for continuous-variable entanglement distribution over a pure loss communication channel.
