Robust multipartite multilevel quantum protocols

Hideomi Nihira and C. R. Stroud, Jr.

Phys. Rev. A 72, 022337 (2005).


We present a quantum protocol utilizing a tripartite three-level state. The state used in this scheme contains entanglement even after one system is traced out and as a result can be used for both a secret-sharing protocol among the three parties and a quantum-key-distribution protocol between any two parties. We show how to utilize this residual entanglement for quantum-key-distribution purposes, and explore a possible realization of the scheme using entanglement of orbital-angular-momentum states of photons.
