A defining feature of quantum mechanics is the phenomenon of entanglement whereby, as Schrodinger put it, “The best possible knowledge of the whole does not necessarily include the same for its parts”. The phenomenon is the basis for what some have called the second quantum revolution that will eventually lead to ubiquitous quantum computing and secure communications. While the entanglement of “particles” such as photons, is fairly well known, the notion of entangled subsystems of a quantum particle – such as its spin, energy, path or angular momentum – has received less attention.
