We study collisions mediated by finite-range potentials as a tool for generating translational entanglement between unbound particles or multipartite systems. The general analysis is applied to one-dimensional scattering, where resonances and the initial phase-space distribution are shown to determine the degree of postcollisional entanglement.

TRANSLATIONAL ENTANGLEMENT BY COLLISIONS AND HALF-COLLISIONS
Here we aim at setting the principles of and quantifying translational entanglement by collisions and half-collisions. In collisions, the resonance width s and the initial phase-space distributions
Time dependence of quantum entanglement in the collision of two particles
We follow the emergence of quantum entanglement in a scattering event between two initially uncorrelated distinguishable quantum particles interacting via a delta potential. We calculate the time
Dynamical Entanglement in Non-Relativistic, Elastic Scattering
This article considers dynamical entanglement in non-relativistic particle scattering. Three questions are explored: what kinds of entanglement occur in this system, how do global symmetries
Developments in entanglement theory and applications to relevant physical systems
This Thesis is devoted to the analysis of entanglement in relevant physical systems. Entanglement is the conducting theme of this research, though I do not dedicate to a single topic, but consider a

Dynamics of electron entanglement in semiconductor nanostructures
Quantum entanglement, the most remarkable feature of quantum physics, is recognized as a resource for quantum information processing. The quest for quantum-computing devices has also produced great
Emergence of oscillations in quantum entanglement during rescattering
We study the time evolution of entanglement in a model system consisting of an electron and its parent ion during the quantum mechanical process of rescattering due to a strong few-cycle laser pulse.
TRANSLATIONAL ENTANGLEMENT AND TELEPORTATION OF MATTER WAVEPACKETS BY COLLISIONS AND HALF-COLLISIONS
To date, the translationally-entangled state originally proposed by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen (EPR) in 1935 has not been experimentally realized for massive particles. Opatrný and Kurizki [Phys.
Validity of the single-particle approach for electron transport in quantum wires assisted by surface acoustic waves.
TLDR
It is found that for particles captured in low-energy bound states the quantum correlations turn out to be negligible, thus validating a single-particle approach to the dynamics of such systems.
Dynamics of electron-electron entanglement in pulsed sinusoidal potentials
The surface acoustic wave (SAW) assisted charge transport represents a highly controllable mean to inject and drive electrons along quasi one-dimensional channels. By means of numerical simulations,
