We present entanglement witness operators for detecting genuine multipartite entanglement. These witnesses are robust against noise and require only two local measurement settings when used in an experiment, independent of the number of qubits. This allows detection of entanglement for an increasing number of parties without a corresponding increase in effort. The witnesses presented detect states close to Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger, cluster, and graph states. Connections to Bell inequalities…

Multipartite Entanglement Detection with Minimal Effort.
TLDR

Experimental detection of multipartite entanglement using witness operators.
TLDR
A canonical way of constructing and decomposing witness operators so that they can be directly implemented with present technology is introduced and applied to three- and four-qubit entangled states of polarized photons, giving experimental evidence that the considered states contain true multipartite entanglement.
