Résumé : We study the effect of a phase shift on the amount of transferable two-spin entanglement in a spin chain. We consider a ferromagnetic Heisenberg or XY spin chain, both numerically and analytically, and two mechanisms to generate a phase shift, the Aharonov-Casher effect, and the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction. In both cases, the maximum attainable entanglement is shown to be significantly enhanced, suggesting its potential usefulness in quantum information processing. © 2007 The American Physical Society.
