Abstract.We study quantum entanglement in a single-level quantum dot in the linear-response regime. The results show, that the maximal quantum value of the conductance 2e2/h not always match the maximal entanglement. The pairwise entanglement between the quantum dot and the nearest atom of the lead is also analyzed by utilizing the Wootters formula for charge and spin degrees of freedom separately. The coexistence of zero concurrence and the maximal conductance is observed for low values of…

Entanglement and the Kondo effect in serially coupled double quantum dots

Abstract.We investigate entanglement between electrons in serially coupled double quantum dots attached to noninteracting leads. In addition to local repulsion we consider the influence of capacitive

Quantum entanglement of space domains occupied by interacting electrons

Spin‐entanglement of two electrons occupying two spatial regions – domains – is expressed in a compact form in terms of spin‐spin correlation functions. The power of the formalism is demonstrated on

Effects of scattering resonances on carrier-carrier entanglement in charged quantum dots

Abstract We address the problem of the entanglement generation in an electron-scattering by a 1D double-barrier resonant tunnelling device. In particular we analyze the role played by transport

Quantification of correlations in quantum many-particle systems.

We introduce a well-defined and unbiased measure of the strength of correlations in quantum many-particle systems which is based on the relative von Neumann entropy computed from the density operator

Pairwise entanglement and the Mott transition for correlated electrons in nanochains

Pairwise entanglement, calculated separately for charge and spin degrees of freedom, is proposed as a ground-state signature of the Mott transition in correlated nanoscopic systems. Utilizing the

Entanglement switching via the Kondo effect in triple quantum dots

We consider a triple quantum dot system in a triangular geometry with one of the dots connected to metallic leads. Using Wilson’s numerical renormalization group method, we investigate quantum



Double-occupancy errors, adiabaticity, and entanglement of spin qubits in quantum dots

Quantum gates that temporarily increase singlet-triplet splitting in order to swap electronic spins in coupled quantum dots lead inevitably to a finite double-occupancy probability for both dots. By

Diverging entanglement length in gapped quantum spin systems.

It is proved the existence of gapped quantum Hamiltonians whose ground states exhibit an infinite entanglement length, as opposed to their finite correlation length, and it is reported on evidence that the ground state of an antiferromagnetic chain can be used as a perfect quantum channel if local measurements on the individual spins can be implemented.

Scaling of entanglement close to a quantum phase transition

It is demonstrated, for a class of one-dimensional magnetic systems, that entanglement shows scaling behaviour in the vicinity of the transition point, which connects the theory of critical phenomena with quantum information by exploring the entangling resources of a system close to its quantum critical point.

Quantum entanglement in fermionic lattices

The Fock space of a system of indistinguishable particles is isomorphic (in a nonunique way) to the state space of a composite, i.e., many modes, quantum system. One can then discuss quantum

Entanglement of Formation of an Arbitrary State of Two Qubits

The entanglement of a pure state of a pair of quantum systems is defined as the entropy of either member of the pair. The entanglement of formation of a mixed state is defined as the minimum average

Fano versus Kondo resonances in a multilevel "semiopen" quantum dot.

Kondo correlations damp the oscillations on an extended range of gate voltage values, by freezing the occupancy of the epsilon(0) level itself, as a consequence of the antiresonances of Fano origin are washed out.

An intrinsic limit to quantum coherence due to spontaneous symmetry breaking.

It is shown that spontaneous symmetry breaking imposes a fundamental limit to the time that a system can stay quantum coherent, which is approximately 2piNH/(kBT).

Quantum phase transitions

Abstract We give a general introduction to quantum phase transitions in strongly correlated electron systems. These transitions, which occur at zero temperature when a non-thermal parameter g such as

Entanglement and quantum phase transition in the extended Hubbard model.

The results show, for the first time, that entanglement can be used to identify quantum phase transitions in fermionic systems.
