Abstract

I will review the idea that entanglement must ultimately be understood in terms of modes, rather than in terms of particles. The most striking instance of mode entanglement is a single particle entangled state, which I will discuss both in the case of bosons as well as in the case of fermions. I then proceed to show that the Aharonov-Bohm effect can be understood by using a single electron entangled state. Finally, I will argue that this demonstrates beyond doubt that the Aharonov-Bohm effect is non non-local, contrary to what is frequently claimed in the literature.
