Abstract: We experimentally demonstrate the achievement of the entanglement-assisted capacity for classical information transmission over a depolarizing channel. The implementation is based on the generation and local manipulation of two-qubit Bell states, which are finally measured at the receiver by realizing projective measurements in the Bell basis. The depolarizing channel is realized by introducing quantum noise in a controlled way on one of the two qubits. This work represents an investigation into the amount of information that can be shared in the presence of noise.
