Title: Cooper pair splitting in real-time

Cooper pair splitters are promising candidates for generating spin-entangled electrons. By splitting the Cooper pairs in a superconductor into different normal-state leads, spin-entanglement between spatially separated electrons can be achieved. In this talk, I will give an overview of our recent works on Cooper pair splitters [1-5]. I will discuss our proposal for observing and characterizing the splitting of Cooper pairs in real-time as well as its experimental realization [2,3]. I will then go on to talk about two proposals for controlling the splitting of Cooper pairs using time-dependent gate voltages [4]. Finally, if time allows, I will discuss how an entanglement witness can be formulated in terms of current cross-correlation measurements, which makes it possible to detect the entanglement of the split Cooper pairs [5].
