The Gaussian toolbox of the continuous variables provides for deterministic, high-efficiency operations with non-classical states. Its very Gaussian nature, however, restricts its reach for quantum information and communication applications. This thesis comprises three experimental works, which seek to examine the strengths of this toolbox and address some of its weaknesses. The measurement-based non-linearity of a conditional photon-counting measurement can be used to de-Gaussify' a Gaussian...[Show more]
