Multi-particle entanglement in quantum computers
The superposition principle and entanglement are the central properties for quantum computing, and a fully operational quantum computer can be used to synthesize any desired entangled state of its constituents. In this paper we show that some of the most attractive, and potentially most applicable, multi-particle entangled states are also the ones most easily prepared, and they are already within reach of current experiments.
