DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Francesco Albarelli (University of Warwick)\nWe deri
ve fundamental bounds on the maximal achievable precision in multiparamete
r noisy quantum metrology\, tighter than a direct use of single-parameter
results. This allows us to study the effect of incompatibility of optimal
probe states for simultaneous estimation of multiple parameters in generic
channels\, so far studied mostly in noiseless scenarios. We apply our res
ults to several paradigmatic example\, such as lossy multiple-phase interf
erometry.\nGoing beyond the multiparameter estimation paradigm\, we introd
uce the concept of random quantum sensing and show how the tools developed
may be applied to multiple-channel discrimination. As an illustration\, w
e prove the loss of the quadratic advantage of time-continuous Grover algo
rithm in presence of dephasing or erasure noise.\n\nhttps://indico.unina.i

s rise to a plethora of exotic light-matter interactions. In particular\,
photonic lattices can seed long-lived atom-photon bound states inside phot

tecture consisting of an array of high-impedance superconducting resonator
s forming a 1 GHz-wide pass band\, in which we have embedded two frequency
-tuneable artificial atoms. We study the atom-field interaction and access
previously unexplored coupling regimes\, in both the single- and double-e
xcitation subspace. In addition\, we demonstrate coherent interactions bet
ween two atom-photon bound states\, in both resonant and dispersive regime
s. The presented architecture holds promise for quantum simulation with tu
neable-range interactions and experiments in nonlinear photon transport. R

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Filippo Caruso (Dipartimento di Fisica e Astronomia\

here nowadays machine learning is going to meet quantum information scienc
e in order to realize more powerful quantum technologies. In particular\,
several QML schemes can arise according to the fact that the data to be pr
ocessed and the algorithm processing them can be either classical or quant
um. Moreover\, the learning algorithms can be unsupervised\, supervised an
d goal-oriented (reinforcement learning). Here\, we will discuss our recen
t theoretical and experimental results focusing on quantum embedding\, qua
ntum state discrimination\, noise sensing\, quantum generative adversarial
networks\, and quantum reinforcement learning. QML is expected to provide
huge advantages over its classical counterpart\, and deeper investigation
s are timely needed since they can be already tested on the commercially a

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Marco Barbieri (Università Roma Tre\, Italy)\nWe d
iscuss two experimental results on the problem of quantum estimation appli
ed to functions. We illustrate quantum function estimation of the phase re
sponse of a liquid crystal employing both quantum and classical resources\
, providing evidence of the superiority of the former strategy. Including
function estimation in the toolkit of quantum metrology opens up opportuni
ties for quantum enhancement in problems such as evaluating time-dependent
signals and mapping fields. The second experiment concerns semiparametric
methods applied to the frequency two-photon wavefunction\, based on Hong-
Ou-Mandel interferometry. Tools from classical statistics and quantum esti
mation have shown their usefulness in analysing and engineering metrologic
al schemes based on Hong-Ou-Mandel interference: we expect that advanced s

novel tuning mechanisms that are not susceptible to specific noise sources
in a transmon configuration. Moreover\, digital control based on classica

qubit control and readout for scalable architectures in this linked digita

ics rely on our ability to shape optical modes and their relative coupling
s. In these platforms\, reproducing temporally-long evolutions is challeng

red in the particles quasi-momentum space\, encoded into a spatial coordin

a spatially-varying polarization transformation\, realized through liquid

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dario Alessandro Fioretto (Centre de Nanosciences et
Nanotechnologies (C2N)\, CNRS\, Université Paris Saclay)\nIn semiconduct
or quantum dots\, the spin of a confined charge carrier\, whether electron
or hole\, attracted a lot of interest since spin-polarized optical transi
tions enable the efficient generation of spin-photon and photon-photon ent
anglement. This could be extended to generate multi-photon entangled state
s\, which are building blocks for quantum technologies such as measurement
-based quantum computing.\nIn this work\, we exploit a phonon-assisted\, o
ff-resonant excitation scheme that enables access to the polarization degr
ee of freedom to probe the spin dynamics\, whilst maintaining efficient si
ngle-photon generation and high purity. We demonstrate that we can address
the spin-selective transitions\, observing the Larmor precession of a sin
gle-hole spin around an in-plane magnetic field\, opening the route toward
s an efficient generation of polarization-encoded multi-photon entangled s

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Lucia Duca (INRiM / LENS)\nUltracold atoms and trapp
ed ions have proven to be valuable resources for getting new insights on f
undamental physical phenomena. Trapped ions can be individually addressed
and coherently manipulated. Ultracold gases\, instead\, provide large atom
ic samples where trapping potentials and interactions are controlled exter
nally\, making them well suited for systematic studies of many-body quantu
m phenomena. An atom-ion hybrid system brings together the advantages of e
ach physical system and provides an ideal platform to investigate fundamen
tal quantum mechanics\, like localized impurities in a Fermi gas. Here we
present the first step towards the realization of such hybrid system: the
trapping of Ba ions\, together with the current state of advancement of th
e apparatus that will allow us to reach coherent atom-ion coupling.\n\nhtt

code. We then use Monte-Carlo simulations to study the resulting phase di

gainst a minimum-weight perfect matching decoder. The presented method pro
vides an avenue to assess the fundamental thresholds of QEC codes and asso

the development of quantum technologies\, it is pivotal to discern devices
exploiting quantum phenomena from faulty ones. This essential task is elu

cal and quantum causal predictions\, which can detect nonclassical correla
tions\, with no assumptions on the apparatus (device-independently). This
talk will present two demonstrations of this approach\, applied to instrum
ental processes and experimentally implemented on photonic platforms. Firs

an inequality constraint and used to bound the randomness of a bit string.
Then\, a novel and more general approach will be adopted\, exploiting the
quantification of causal influence between two variables.\n\nhttps://indi

presence of genuine multipartite nonlocality between all parties. The resu

scaling phases of distinct topological order. We find numerically that\,
in the presence of unitary dynamics\, the two topological phases are separ
ated by a sub-volume scaling region and that the transition universality c

s can mediate dissipative\, fully non-reciprocal\, interactions between em
itters with range critically dependent on the loss rate. At the bare-latti
ce exceptional point\, the effective couplings are exactly nearest-neighbo
ur\, implementing a dissipative\, fully non-reciprocal\, Hatano-Nelson mod

conditions. Thus photons can mediate an effective emitters’ Hamiltonian
which is translationally-invariant despite the fact that the field is not

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Ugo Marzolino (INFN\, Trieste)\, Fabio Benatti (Univ
ersità di Trieste)\nFor distinguishable particles\, there exists an agree
d upon notion of entanglement based on the possibility of addressing indiv
idually each particle. Instead\, the indistinguishability hinders their in
dividual addressability and has prompted diverse\, discordant definitions
of entanglement. I will present a formulatiom of emtamglement in terms of
correlation functions\, that provides a general setting to discuss non-loc
al effects. I will focus on the following general criteria: i) entanglemen
t corresponds to non-local correlations\; ii) when\, by "freezing" suitabl
e degrees of freedom\, identical particles can be effectively distinguishe
d\, entanglement must reduce to the standard notion\; iii) entanglement is
a resource for quantum information protocols. These requests are satisfie
d by the so-called mode-entanglement theory which accounts for correlation
s between physical modes rather than particles.\n\nhttps://indico.unina.it

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Matteo Piccolini (Università degli Studi di Palermo
)\nWe discuss the problem of entanglement protection against surrounding n
oise by a procedure suitably exploiting spatial indistinguishability of id
entical subsystems. To this purpose\, we take two initially separated and
entangled identical qubits interacting with two independent noisy environm
ents. Three typical models of environments are considered: the amplitude d
amping channel\, the phase damping channel and the depolarizing channel. A
fter the interaction\, we deform the qubits wave functions to make them sp
atially overlap before performing spatially localized operations and class
ical communication (sLOCC). By computing the concurrence of the resulting
state we show that this protocol partially recovers the spoiled entangleme
nt thanks to the induced spatial indistinguishability. A general behavior
emerges: the higher the indistinguishability achieved\, the larger the amo
unt of recovered correlations.\n\nhttps://indico.unina.it/event/52/contrib
