Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


We quantify the capability of creating entanglement for a general physical interaction acting on two qubits. We give a procedure for optimizing the generation of entanglement. We also show that a Hamiltonian can create more entanglement if one uses auxiliary systems.
