Gravitationally Induced Entanglement between Two Massive Particles is Sufficient Evidence of Quantum Effects in Gravity.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters

This work proves that any system mediating entanglement between two quantum systems must be quantum, and proposes an experiment to detect the entanglements generated between two masses via gravitational interaction, which is closer to realization than detecting gravitons or detecting quantum gravitational vacuum fluctuations.
