TOPIC: Entanglement and Heisenberg Limit in Quantum Interferometry

The quantum Fisher information provides a sufficient condition to recognize multi-particle entanglement in a N quibit state. The same criterion gives a necessary and sufficient condition for sub shot-noise phase sensitivity in the estimation of a collective rotation angle $\theta$. The analysis therefore singles out the class of entangled states which are "useful" to overcome classical phase sensitivity in metrology and sensors. We will discuss the creation of such useful entangled states by the non-linear dynamical evolution of a Bose-Einstein condensates trapped in a double-well potential.
