Abstract

We introduce a kind of entangled state—a photon-addition two-mode squeezed thermal state (TMSTS)—by adding photons to each mode of the TMSTS. Using the P-representation of thermal state, the compact expression of the normalization factor is derived, a Jacobi polynomial. The nonclassicality is investigated by exploring especially the negativity of Wigner function. The entanglement is discussed by using Shchukin–Vogel criteria. It is shown that the photon addition to the TMSTS may be more effective for the entanglement enhancement than the photon subtraction from the TMSTS. In addition, the quantum teleportation is also examined, which shows that symmetrical photon-added TMSTS may be more useful for quantum teleportation than the nonsymmetric case.
