Entanglement Dynamics in Open Two-Qubit Systems via Diffusive Quantum Trajectories

Viviescas, Carlos; Guevara, Ivonne; Carvalho, Andre; Busse, Marc; Buchleitner, Andreas


We use quantum diffusive trajectories to prove that the time evolution of two-qubit entanglement under spontaneous emission can be fully characterized by optimal continuous monitoring. We analytically determine this optimal unraveling and derive a deterministic evolution equation for the system's concurrence. Furthermore, we propose an experiment to monitor the entanglement dynamics in bipartite two-level systems and to determine the disentanglement time from a single trajectory.
