Citebase - A Lorentz-invariant look at quantum clock synchronization protocols based on distributed entanglement

A Lorentz-invariant look at quantum clock synchronization protocols based on distributed entanglement

Authors: Yurtsever, Ulvi; Dowling, Jonathan P.


Recent work has raised the possibility that quantum information theory techniques can be used to synchronize atomic clocks nonlocally. One of the proposed algorithms for quantum clock synchronization (QCS) requires distribution of entangled pure singlets to the synchronizing parties. Such remote entanglement distribution normally creates a relative phase error in the distributed singlet state which then needs to be purified asynchronously. We present a fully relativistic analysis of the QCS protocol which shows that asynchronous entanglement purification is not possible, and, therefore, that the proposed QCS scheme remains incomplete. We discuss possible directions of research in quantum information theory which may lead to a complete, working QCS protocol.
