Entanglement is an important resource in quantum-enhanced technologies, but it is difficult to generate, especially in solid-state systems. An experiment now demonstrates the entanglement of two nuclear spins via a parity measurement of the electron spin in a nitrogen-vacancy centre in diamond. 
Quantum information: Violation of Bell's inequality in Si.
An entangled state of two spin qubits in silicon has been prepared and measured, yielding a violation of Bell's inequality that is the largest achieved in the solid state so far.
Manipulating a qubit through the backaction of sequential partial measurements and real-time feedback
Quantum measurements affect the state of the system, so they can be used both as probe and control knob. This idea is demonstrated in an experiment with nuclear spin qubits in diamond that are

Nitrogen atoms trapped tens of nanometres apart in diamond can now be linked by quantum entanglement. This ability to produce and control entanglement in solid systems could enable powerful quantum
Generation and stabilization of Bell states via repeated projective measurements on a driven ancilla qubit
A protocol is proposed to generate Bell states in two non-directly interacting qubits by means of repeated measurements of the state of a central ancilla connected to both qubits. An optimal
Quantum measurement and real-time feedback with a spin-register in diamond
Gaining precise control over quantum systems is crucial for applications in quantum information processing and quantum sensing and to perform experimental tests of quantum mechanics. The experiments
Photon-Mediated Quantum Information Processing with Neutral Atoms in an Optical Cavity
In this dissertation, the common coupling of two atomic qubits to the mode of an optical cavity is studied. Reflection of light pulses from the coupled atom-atom-cavity system and their subsequent


A one-way quantum computer.
A scheme of quantum computation that consists entirely of one-qubit measurements on a particular class of entangled states, the cluster states, which are thus one-way quantum computers and the measurements form the program.
Multipartite Entanglement Among Single Spins in Diamond
This work demonstrates the creation of bipartite- and tripartite-entangled quantum states in a small quantum register consisting of individual 13C nuclei in a diamond lattice, which is adequate for sophisticated quantum operations.
Fermionic Bell-State Analyzer for Spin Qubits
This protocol and physical implementation for partial Bell-state measurements of Fermionic qubits, allowing for deterministic quantum computing in solid-state systems without the need for two-qubit gates, greatly simplifies the experimental realization of scalable quantum computers in electronic nanostructures.
Mesoscopic quadratic quantum measurements.
It is shown that the quadratic measurements should have nontrivial quantum information properties, providing, for instance, a simple way of entangling two noninteracting qubits.
Creation of entangled states of distant atoms by interference
We propose a scheme to create distant entangled atomic states. It is based on driving two (or more) atoms with a weak laser pulse, so that the probability that two atoms are excited is negligible. If

We show how the state of an atom trapped in a cavity can be teleported to a second atom trapped in a distant cavity simply by detecting photon decays from the cavities. This is a rare example of a
