Entanglement is one of the most intriguing features of quantum mechanics. It describes non-local correlations between quantum objects, and is at the heart of quantum information sciences. Entanglement is rapidly gaining prominence in diverse fields ranging from condensed matter to quantum gravity. Despite this generality, measuring entanglement remains challenging. This is especially true in systems of interacting delocalized particles, for which a direct experimental measurement of spatial… 

Measuring multipartite entanglement through dynamic susceptibilities

Entanglement is considered an essential resource in quantum technologies, and central to the understanding of quantum many-body physics. Developing protocols to detect and quantify the entanglement

Aspects of quantum information in finite density field theory

We study different aspects of quantum field theory at finite density using methods from quantum information theory. For simplicity we focus on massive Dirac fermions with nonzero chemical potential,

Quantum logic using correlated one-dimensional quantum walks

Quantum Walks are unitary processes describing the evolution of an initially localized wavefunction on a lattice potential. The complexity of the dynamics increases significantly when several

Interferometric measurements of many-body topological invariants using mobile impurities

It is shown how fractional charges can be probed in the bulk of fractional quantum Hall systems, and it is demonstrated that combining Ramsey interference with Bloch oscillations can be used to measure Chern numbers characterizing the dispersion of individual quasiparticles, which gives a direct probe of their fractionalCharges.

The Controllability of Quantum Correlation Under Geometry and Entropy Discords

Quantum correlation plays a critical role in the maintenance of quantum information processing and nanometer device design. In the past two decades, several quantitative methods had been proposed to

Quantum algorithms for open lattice field theory

Certain aspects of some unitary quantum systems are well-described by evolution via a non-Hermitian effective Hamiltonian, as in the Wigner-Weisskopf theory for spontaneous decay. Conversely, any

The $\hbar\rightarrow 0$ Limit of the Entanglement Entropy

Entangled quantum states share properties that do not have classical analogs, in particular, they show correlations that can violate Bell inequalities. It is therefore an interesting question to see

Correlation measures and the entanglement wedge cross-section after quantum quenches in two-dimensional conformal field theories

We consider the time evolution of mixed state correlation measures in two-dimensional conformal field theories, such as logarithmic negativity, odd entropy, and reflected entropy, after quantum

We consider the time evolution of mixed state correlation measures in two-dimensional conformal field theories, such as logarithmic negativity, odd entropy, and reflected entropy, after quantum

An odyssey in modern quantum many-body physics

This thesis is a collection of research work in quantum many-body physics that I have done during the past few years. The topics include: 1. a theory of anomalous magnetotransport from mass



Spatial entanglement of bosons in optical lattices

This work adopts recently developed approaches for the determination of rigorous lower entanglement bounds from readily accessible measurements and applies them in an experiment of ultracold interacting bosons in optical lattices of ~10(5) sites, constituting the first rigorous experimental large-scale entanglements quantification in a scalable quantum simulator.

Experimental determination of entanglement with a single measurement

A linear optics experiment is reported in which a pure-state entanglement measure is directly observed, namely concurrence, which is measured with a single, local measurement on just one of the photons.

Direct Measurement of Nonlinear Properties of Bipartite Quantum States

This work extracts a nonlocal and a nonlinear quantity, namely the Renyi entropy, from local measurements on two pairs of polarization entangled photons and introduces a “phase marking” technique which allows to select uncorrupted outcomes even with nondeterministic sources of entangled photons.

Thermal versus entanglement entropy: a measurement protocol for fermionic atoms with a quantum gas microscope

We show how to measure the order-two Renyi entropy of many-body states of spinful fermionic atoms in an optical lattice in equilibrium and non-equilibrium situations. The proposed scheme relies on

Colloquium: Area laws for the entanglement entropy

Physical interactions in quantum many-body systems are typically local: Individual constituents interact mainly with their few nearest neighbors. This locality of interactions is inherited by a decay

Unbounded growth of entanglement in models of many-body localization.

The significance for proposed atomic experiments is that local measurements will show a large but nonthermal entropy in the many-body localized state, which develops slowly over a diverging time scale as in glassy systems.

Entanglement entropy of critical spin liquids.

It is found that entanglement entropy of the projected Fermi sea state violates the boundary law, with S(2) enhanced by a logarithmic factor, an unusual result for a bosonic wave function reflecting the presence of emergent fermions.

Identifying topological order by entanglement entropy

Topological phases are unique states of matter that incorporate long-range quantum entanglement and host exotic excitations with fractional quantum statistics. Here we report a practical method to

Spatially Resolved Detection of a Spin-Entanglement Wave in a Bose-Hubbard Chain.

This work measures entanglement between the spins of atoms located on two lattice sites in a one-dimensional Bose-Hubbard chain which features both local spin- and particle-number fluctuations.

Atomic Hong–Ou–Mandel experiment

Two-particle interference is a fundamental feature of quantum mechanics, and is even less intuitive than wave–particle duality for a single particle. In this duality, classical concepts—wave or
