Summary: Two nonlocal and unknown pure qubit states can, with a certain probability of success, be discriminated unambiguously with the aid of local operations, classical communication, and shared entanglements (LOCCSE). We present a scheme for such kind of nonlocal unambiguous quantum state discrimination. This scheme consists of a nonlocal positive operator valued measurement (POVM). This nonlocal POVM can be realized by performing nonlocal unitary operations on initial system and ancillary qubits, and local von Neumann projective measurements on the ancilla plus initial system. By utilizing the degrees of freedom of the original system Hilbert space, we need far more simpler operations than those required by the original Neumark approach. We construct a quantum logic network to implement the required nonlocal POVM.
