MiS Preprint Repository

We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV ( that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.

Experimental Detection of Quantum Entanglement

Ming Li, Ming-Jing Zhao, Shao-Ming Fei and Xianqing Li-Jost


In this review, we introduce some methods for detecting or measuring entanglement. Several non-linear entanglement witnesses are presented. We derive a series of Bell inequalities whose maximally violations for any multipartite qubit states can be calculated by using our formulas. Both the non-linear entanglement witnesses and the Bell inequalities can be operated experimentally. Thus they supply an effective way for detecting entanglement. We also introduce some experimental methods to measure the entanglement of formation, and the lower bound of the convex-roof extension of negativity.
