Entanglement is a fundamental resource for quantum information processing, occurring naturally in many-body systems at low temperatures. The presence of entanglement and, in particular, its scaling with the size of system partitions underlies the complexity of quantum many-body states. The quantitative estimation of entanglement in many-body systems represents a major challenge, as it requires either full-state tomography, scaling exponentially in the system size, or the assumption of… 
Measuring entanglement entropy in a quantum many-body system
Making use of the single-site-resolved control of ultracold bosonic atoms in optical lattices, two identical copies of a many-body state are prepared and interfered to directly measure quantum purity, Rényi entanglement entropy, and mutual information.
Measuring entanglement entropy through the interference of quantum many-body twins
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.
Estimating strong correlations in optical lattices
Ultra-cold atoms in optical lattices provide one of the most promising platforms for analog quantum simulations of complex quantum many-body systems. Large-size systems can now routinely be reached
Accessible quanti fi cation of multiparticle entanglement
Entanglement is a key ingredient for quantum technologies and a fundamental signature of quantumness in a broad range of phenomena encompassing many-body physics, thermodynamics, cosmology and life
Accessible quantification of multiparticle entanglement
The approach provides analytical results for particular classes of mixed states of N qubits, and computable lower bounds to global, partial, or genuine multiparticle entanglement of any general state.
Emergence of entanglement with temperature and time in factorization-surface states
There exist zero-temperature states in quantum many-body systems that are fully factorized, thereby possessing vanishing entanglement, and hence being of no use as resource in quantum information
Deterministic entanglement generation from driving through quantum phase transitions
This work demonstrates near-deterministic generation of an entangled twin-Fock condensate of ~11,000 atoms by driving a rubidium-87 Bose-Einsteincondensate undergoing spin mixing through two consecutive quantum phase transitions (QPTs).
Entanglement Quantification in Atomic Ensembles.
This work analytically derives the lower bounds of broad families of entanglement criteria based on variances of arbitrary operators and lower bounding the best separable approximation and the generalized robustness only from measurements of first and second moments of the collective spin operator.
Experimentally Accessible Witnesses of Many-Body Localization
This work introduces experimentally accessible witnesses that directly probe distinct features of MBL, distinguishing it from its Anderson counterpart, and builds upon the theory of out of equilibrium quantum systems, in conjunction with tensor network and exact simulations, showing the effectiveness of the tools for realistic models.


Measuring entanglement in condensed matter systems.
This work shows how entanglement may be quantified in spin and cold atom many-body systems using standard experimental techniques only and relies solely on global measurements that are routinely performed and is versatile enough to accommodate systems and measurements different from the ones the authors exemplify in this work.
Area laws for the entanglement entropy - a review
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
Controlled collisions for multi-particle entanglement of optically trapped atoms
This work reports the creation of highly entangled states of neutral atoms trapped in the periodic potential of an optical lattice, and observes a coherent entangling–disentangling evolution in the many-body system, depending on the phase shift acquired during the collision between neighbouring atoms.
Scalable multiparticle entanglement of trapped ions
The scalable and deterministic generation of four-, five-, six-, seven- and eight-particle entangled states of the W type with trapped ions are reported, which obtain the maximum possible information on these states by performing full characterization via state tomography, using individual control and detection of the ions.
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
Quantum dynamics and entanglement of spins on a square lattice
A comprehensive set of neutron scattering measurements are described that reveal a non-spin-wave continuum and strong quantum effects, suggesting entanglement of spins at short distances in the simplest of all two-dimensional quantum antiferromagnets, the square lattice Heisenberg system.
Quantum entanglement
All our former experience with application of quantum theory seems to say that what is predicted by quantum formalism must occur in the laboratory. But the essence of quantum formalism— entanglement,
Atom-chip-based generation of entanglement for quantum metrology
The experimental generation of multi-particle entanglement on an atom chip is reported by controlling elastic collisional interactions with a state-dependent potential to generate spin-squeezed states of a two-component Bose–Einstein condensate; such states are a useful resource for quantum metrology.
Observation of Correlated Particle-Hole Pairs and String Order in Low-Dimensional Mott Insulators
By using high-resolution imaging of low-dimensional quantum gases in an optical lattice, this work directly detects correlated particle-hole pairs with single-site and single-particle sensitivity and observes string order in the one-dimensional case.
Quantifying entanglement with witness operators
An infinite family of new entanglement quantifiers is introduced, having as its limits the best separable approximation measure and the generalized robustness, and provides sharper bounds to d_(min) and E_D than the negativity in most the states.
