In 1935 E. Schrödinger introduced the term steering in order to describe Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) entangled states for which a measurement on subsystem "A" may apparently allow for remote steering on the outcome of a measurement on subsystem "B" without the presence of a physical interaction between the subsystems. The EPR effect was already demonstrated by Ou et al. in 1992, however, in all experiments so far the steering effect was two-way, i.e. if Alice could steer Bob, Bob could also steer Alice. Here, we report for the first time on the realization of (continuous variable) one-way steering in which only Alice can steer Bob, but Bob cannot steer Alice, although they share the same entangled state.
