*Let's simplify the model. Instead of a Nitrogen molecule,

participate in the entanglement? TIA, AG*
The electron's spin dof can only become entangled with the
environment by an interaction with the environment.
Does that happen spontaneously, in the absence of a measurement? AG
Isn't this one of the big unsolved problems in QM? How would you
explain spontaneous entanglement?
I've never heard the term and I don't know what it means.
We think it occurs when we have an instrument to measure some
observable, but there must be a more general process speculated to
explain spontaneous entanglement. Don't ya think? AG
