Electron-nuclear entanglement in the cold lithium gases

Guo-Qiang Zhu, Jun-Wen Mao and You-Quan Li
From the journal Open Physics


We study the ground-state entanglement and thermal entanglement in the hyperfine interaction of the lithium atom. We present the relationship between the entanglement and both temperature and external magnetic fields.
