In this paper, we study the fine structure of entanglement in holographic two-dimensional boundary conformal field theories (BCFT) in terms of the spatially resolved quasilocal extension of entanglement entropy entanglement contour. We find that the boundary induces discontinuities in the contour revealing hidden localizationdelocalization patterns of entanglement degrees of freedom. Moreover, we observe the formation of “islands” where the entanglement contour vanishes identically implying… Expand
