Characterizing errors in entangled-atom interferometry

Recent progress in generating entanglement between neutral atoms provides opportunities to advance quantum sensing technology. In particular, entanglement can enhance the performance of accelerometers and gravimeters based on light-pulse atom interferometry. We study the effects of error sources that may limit the sensitivity of such devices, including errors in the preparation of the initial entangled state, spread of the initial atomic wave packet, and imperfections in the laser pulses. Based on the performed analysis, entanglement-enhanced atom interferometry appears to be feasible with existing experimental capabilities.
