Spin chains are natural candidates

as quantum devices

QUBITS

  • Entanglement is a resource for:

teleportation

dense coding

quantum cryptography

quantum computation

  • Strong quantum fluctuations in low-dimensional quantum systems at T=0

  • The Entanglement can give another perspective for understanding Quantum Phase Transitions

  • Local Entropy: when the subsystem A is a single site.

  • Applied to the extended Hubbard model

  • The local entropy depends only on the average double occupancy

  • The entropy is maximal at the phase transition lines

  • (equipartition)

Ising model in transverse field

  • Critical point: l=1

  • The concurrence measures the entanglement between two sites after having traced out the remaining sites.

  • The transition is signaled by the first derivative of the concurrence, which diverges logarithmically (specific heat).

Calculating the LE requires finding an optimal basis, which is a formidable task in general

However, using symmetries some maximal (optimal) basis are easily found and the LE takes a manageable form

Conclusions

  • Low-dimensional systems are good candidates for Quantum Information devices.

  • Several local measures of entanglement have been proposed recently for the detection and classification of QPT. (nonsystematic approach)

  • Apart from accidental cancellations all the scaling properties of local entanglement come from the most relevant (RG) scaling operator.

  • The most natural local quantity is , where g is the driving parameter

  • across the QPT.

  • it shows a crossing effect

  • it is unique and generally applicable

Advantages:

  • Localizable Entanglement  It is related to some already known correlation functions. It promotes S=1 chains as perfect quantum channels.

  • Open problem: Hard to define entanglement for multipartite systems,

  • separating genuine quantum correlations and classical ones.
