Bipartite Entanglement for Two Electronic Qubits in Double Photoionization of Xeon


Objectives: To study of entanglement between two electronic qubits,without observing spin orbit interaction (SOI), produced by double photo ionization from Xeon atom following the absorption of a photon. Methods: In absence of SOI, Russel-Salunders coupling (L-S coupling) is applicable. As the estimations of entanglement we have considered PeresHorodecki condition and negativity. In case of L-Scoupling, all the properties of electronic qubits are predicted merely with the knowledge of the spins of the target atom, the residual photoion, emitted electrons and the state of polarization of the absorbed photon. Findings: We have found that the electronic qubits may be totally entangled, partially entangled or separable depending on spin states of target Xe, residualdication Xe2+,emitted electrons and the state of polarization of incident photon as well as of the direction sspin quantization and ejection of the photoelectrons. Applications/ Improvements: Studies of quantumen tanglement and its paradoxical properties hold the key to various Quantum information (QI) tasks such as quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography and quantum computer technology.
