Abstract / Description of output

We propose a feasible optical setup allowing for a loophole-free Bell test with efficient homodynedetection. A non-Gaussian entangled state is generated from a two-mode squeezed vacuum bysubtracting a single photon from each mode, using beam splitters and standard low-efficiencysingle-photon detectors. A Bell violation exceeding 1% is achievable with 6 dB squeezed light and ahomodyne efficiency around 95%. A detailed feasibility analysis, based upon the recent experimentalgeneration of single-mode non-Gaussian states, suggests that this method opens a promising avenuetowards a complete experimental Bell test.
