Abstract

Asymmetric Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen (EPR) steering means the ability of one party to nonlocally “steer” the state in the other side through local measurements. The asymmetric property of EPR steering provides adequate security in one-sided device-independent secure quantum communication protocols. In this paper, we theoretically investigate the asymmetric EPR steering schemes between two subsystems of multipartite entangled states by an asymmetric modulation method. Two schemes, including tripartite entangled state to bipartite steering and quadripartite entangled state to tripartite steering, are investigated. By reconstructing the covariance matrix of continuous variable multipartite Gaussian states, we quantify the steerability of manipulating two different subsystems and demonstrate the EPR steering parameter versus various types of states’ parameters. Our work provides a reference for asymmetric quantum information processing and enriches resources for secure quantum networks.
