Abstract [en]

An entanglement effect between the spin and spatial degrees of freedom of an electrically neutral spin-1/2 particle in a planar electric field is predicted. This nonclassical effect is manifested as spatial interference oscillations in a force free simply connected region of space. It is suggested that these oscillations provide an experimentally accessible analogue of Anandan's "quantum solenoid effect'' [Phys. Lett. A 164 (1992) 369], The effect could be tested with spin polarised atoms.
