Large ensembles of ultra-cold atoms offer the possibility to generate an unprecedented level of multi-particle entanglement. However, the creation relies on the fundamental indistinguishability of the particles. Entanglement between spatially addressable systems is required for most applications in the field of quantum information. We employ spin changing collisions in a 87Rb BEC to generate entanglement. By utilizing the natural mode structure of the spin resonances we show entanglement between two spatially separated modes. We prove the entanglement between the modes with a novel criterion, which accounts for imperfections of the state preparation, e.g. varying atom numbers in our condensate and the imperfect symmetry of the state.
