Abstract

We consider the problem of teleporting superposed coherent state using nonmaximally entangled coherent state (NMECS) as quantum channel and study the effect of entanglement on the quality of teleportation. Based on the amount of entanglement shared between the sender and the receiver, we propose two unitary operation strategies to be adopted by the receiver to recover replica of information state with as large a fidelity as possible, and analyzed the behavior of minimum average fidelity (MAF) and mean fidelity (MF) with respect to entanglement. It is fascinatingly found that if the maximally entangled coherent state used in previously proposed schemes is replaced by a particular NMECS, MAF of quantum teleportation increases appreciably at small coherent amplitudes. For coherent amplitudes with |α|20.5, MECS gives higher MF, while for |α|20.5, NMECS gives higher MF.
