Vacuum Entanglement

27th August 2004

Author: B. Reznik (Tel-Aviv)

Abstract

The properties of vacuum entanglement of a free relativistic field and of a Linear Harmonic-chain will be discussed. We shall also discuss a gedanken-experiment for detecting Bell’s inequalities violation in the vacuum, and a scheme for detecting ground-state entanglement in a linear ion trap.
