Our new paper on stability of quantum non-Gaussianity under losses is finally sitting on arXiv. We have experimentally demonstrated extreme robustness of quantum non-Gaussianity of single-photon states with positive Wigner function. The directly witnessed quantum non-Gaussianity of a generated state survives 18 dB of attenuation, while the nonclassicality remains unchanged. Quantum non-Gaussianity is a remarkably enduring nonclassical feature, compared to a very fragile negativity of the Wigner function. Quantum non-Gaussian states are therefore predetermined to be a feasible resource for quantum protocols going beyond Gaussian mixtures of light.
