We construct an explicit entanglement distillation scheme which achieves the coherent information when used to send quantum information over a noisy quantum channel. For Pauli and erasure channels we present efficient encoding and decoding algorithms based on polar codes. Unlike previous constructions, this scheme does not require the sender and receiver to share noiseless entanglement before the protocol begins. It is possible, but still unproven, that the scheme even achieves a rate beyond the coherent information, due to degeneracies of certain error correcting codes. Finally we discuss how the scheme can be used for secret key distillation and private channel coding. Show more
