Entanglement creation and distribution on a graph of exchangecoupled qutrits
Abstract
We propose a protocol that allows both the creation and the distribution of entanglement, resulting in two distant parties (Alice and Bob) conclusively sharing a bipartite Bell state. The system considered is a graph of threelevel objects (''qutrits'') coupled by SU(3) exchange operators. The protocol begins with a third party (Charlie) encoding two lattice sites in unentangled states, and allowing unitary evolution under time. Alice and Bob perform a projective measurement on their respective qutrits at a given time, and obtain a maximally entangled Bell state with a certain probablility. We also consider two further protocols, one based on simple repetition and the other based on successive measurements and conditional resetting, and show that the cumulative probability of creating a Bell state between Alice and Bob tends to unity.

We investigate a simple arrangement of coupled harmonic oscillators which brings out some interesting effects concerning creation of entanglement. It is well known that if each member in a linear chain of coupled harmonic oscillators is prepared in a 'classical state', such as a pure coherent state or a mixed thermal state, no entanglement is created in the rotating wave approximation. On the other hand, if one of the oscillators is prepared in a nonclassical state (pure squeezed state, for instance), entanglement may be created between members of the chain. In the setup considered here, we found that a greatmore »

Efficient creation of continuousvariable entanglement for two atomic ensembles in coupled cavities
We investigate the generation of continuousvariable (CV) entanglement of two separated atomic ensembles in coupled cavities. We find that under certain conditions, the entanglement between the two ensembles is gained periodically when the threelevel {Lambda}type atoms in each ensemble dispersively interact with one classical field and one cavity mode. Generation of the entangled state does not completely depend on the cavity photon number. In addition, the effect of decoherence can be suppressed effectively. 
Creation of quantum entanglement with two separate diamond nitrogen vacancy centers coupled to a photonic molecule
We explore the entanglement generation and the corresponding dynamics between two separate nitrogenvacancy (NV) centers in diamond nanocrystal coupled to a photonic molecule consisting of a pair of coupled photonic crystal (PC) cavities. By calculating the entanglement concurrence with readily available experimental parameters, it is found that the entanglement degree strongly depends on the cavitycavity hopping strength and the NVcentercavity detuning. High concurrence peak and longlived entanglement plateau can be achieved by properly adjusting practical system parameters. Meanwhile, we also discuss the influence of the coupling strength between the NV centers and the cavity modes on the behavior of themore » 
Optimal entanglement witnesses for qubits and qutrits
We study the connection between the HilbertSchmidt measure of entanglement (that is the minimal distance of an entangled state to the set of separable states) and entanglement witness in terms of a generalized Bell inequality which distinguishes between entangled and separable states. A method for checking the nearest separable state to a given entangled one is presented. We illustrate the general results by considering isotropic states, in particular twoqubit and twoqutrit statesand their generalizations to arbitrary dimensionswhere we calculate the optimal entanglement witnesses explicitly. 
E{sub 6} and the bipartite entanglement of three qutrits
Recent investigations have established an analogy between the entropy of fourdimensional supersymmetric black holes in string theory and entanglement in quantum information theory. Examples include: (1) N=2 STU black holes and the tripartite entanglement of three qubits (2state systems), where the common symmetry is [SL(2)]{sup 3} and (2) N=8 black holes and the tripartite entanglement of seven qubits where the common symmetry is E{sub 7} superset of [SL(2)]{sup 7}. Here we present another example: N=8 black holes (or black strings) in five dimensions and the bipartite entanglement of three qutrits (3state systems), where the common symmetry is E{sub 6} supersetmore »
