Abstract:
We present a way of experimental determination of concurrence in terms of the expectation value of local observables for arbitrary multipartite pure states. In stead of joint measurements on two-copy states needed in the experiment [Nature 440, 20(2006)] for two-qubit systems, we need only measurements on one-copy state in every single measurement for any arbitrary dimensional multipartite states, which avoids the preparation of twin states or the imperfect copy of pure states.
