Quantum State Routing and many-qubit Quantum State Transfer via a single channel
The transfer of an unknown quantum state (QST) from a sender to a receiver is one of the main requirements to perform quantum information processing tasks. In this respect, QST of a single qubit by means of spin chains has been widely discussed, and many protocols aiming at performing this task have been proposed (for a review see Refs.  and references therein).
In this talk quantum state routing (QSR) and the transfer of the quantum state of $n\gt 1$ qubits ($n$-QST) by means of spin-$1/2$ chains is addressed. In the case of QSR, the aim is to design a transfer scheme such that the sender is in condition to choose one receiver of the QST out of several spins. The transfer of a quantum state of $n\gt 1$ quits consists in achieving a high-fidelity transfer of the quantum state of many qubits via the use of a spin chain . For the $2$-QST, an analytical expression of the average fidelity as a function of the allowed excitations transfer amplitude are derived and, hence, theoretical investigations on the search and optimisation of other QST protocols may be triggered .
