We demonstrate entanglement generation between mode pairs of a quantum field in a nonuniformly accelerated cavity in Minkowski space-time. The effect is sensitive to the initial state, the choice of the mode pair and bosonic versus fermionic statistics, and it can be stronger by orders of magnitude than the entanglement degradation between a nonuniformly accelerated cavity and an inertial cavity. Detailed results are obtained for massless scalar and spinor fields in (1+1) dimensions. By the…

Motion-generated quantum gates and entanglement resonance
The motion of a cavity in spacetime generates quantum gates via entanglement between cavity modes. While entanglement produced by uniform acceleration is small, we show analytically that two-mode
Momentum correlations of scattered particles in quantum field theory: one-loop entanglement generation
We compute the entanglement entropy variation between initial (separable or entangled in the momenta) and final states $\Delta S_E$ in an elastic scattering of a bipartite system composed by two
Entanglement generation in relativistic cavity motion
We analyse particle creation and mode mixing for a quantum field in an accelerated cavity, assuming small accelerations but allowing arbitrary velocities, travel times and travel distances, and in
Mode-mixing quantum gates and entanglement without particle creation in periodically accelerated cavities
We show that mode-mixing quantum gates can be produced by non- uniform relativistic acceleration. Periodic motion in cavities exhibits a series of resonant conditions producing entangling quantum
Entanglement generation in relativistic quantum fields
We present a general, analytic recipe to compute the entanglement that is generated between arbitrary, discrete modes of bosonic quantum fields by Bogoliubov transformations. Our setup allows the
Experimental test of photonic entanglement in accelerated reference frames
An upper bound on the effects of uniform acceleration on photonic entanglement is derived on experiments in which a genuine quantum state of an entangled photon pair is exposed to a series of different accelerations.
Fermionic mode entanglement in quantum information
We analyze fermionic modes as fundamental entities for quantum information processing. To this end we construct a density operator formalism on the underlying Fock space and demonstrate how it can be

We evaluate self-interaction effects on the quantum correlations of field modes of opposite momenta for scalar theory in a two-dimensional asymptotically flat Robertson-Walker spacetime. Such
Two-mode Gaussian quantum states measured by collinearly and noncollinearly accelerating observers
We generalize $1+1$-dimensional formalism derived by Ahmadi et. al. [Phys. Rev. D \textbf{93}, 124031] to investigate an effect of relativistic acceleration on localized two-mode Gaussian quantum
The fate of non-trivial entanglement under a gravitational collapse
We analyse the evolution of the entanglement of a non-trivial initial quantum field state (which, for simplicity, has been taken to be a bipartite state made out of vacuum and the first excited


Entanglement of Dirac fields in noninertial frames
We analyze the entanglement between two modes of a free Dirac field as seen by two relatively accelerated parties. The entanglement is degraded by the Unruh effect and asymptotically reaches a

We analyse the entanglement and the non-locality of a (1+1)-dimensional massless Dirac field confined to a cavity on a worldtube that consists of inertial and uniformly accelerated segments, for
Quantum entanglement of moving bodies.
We study the properties of quantum entanglement in moving frames, and show that, because spin and momentum become mixed when viewed by a moving observer, the entanglement between the spins of a pair
Entangling moving cavities in noninertial frames.
A scheme for storing quantum information in the field modes of cavities moving in flat space-time is proposed and it is found that in principle it is always possible to produce maximally entangled states between the cavities.
Alice falls into a black hole: entanglement in noninertial frames.
It is shown that a state which is maximally entangled in an inertial frame becomes less entangled if the observers are relatively accelerated, which shows that entanglement is an observer-dependent quantity in noninertial frames.
Lorentz invariance of entanglement classes in multipartite systems
We analyze multipartite entanglement in systems of spin-½ particles from a relativistic perspective. General conditions which have to be met for any classification of multipartite entanglement to be

We describe the spin and momentum degrees of freedom of a system of two massive spin--$\tfrac{1}{2}$ particles as a 4 qubit system. Then we explicitly show how the entanglement changes between
Residual entanglement of accelerated fermions is not nonlocal
We analyze the operational meaning of the residual entanglement in noninertial fermionic systems in terms of the achievable violation of the Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt (CHSH) inequality. We

We analyze the entanglement tradeoff between particle and antiparticle modes of a Dirac field from the perspective of inertial and uniformly accelerated observers. Our results show that a

Simple examples are presented of Lorentz transformations that entangle the spins and momenta of two particles with positive mass and spin $1∕2$. They apply to indistinguishable particles, produce
