We propose a scheme to produce spin entangled states for two interacting electrons. One electron is bound in a well in a semiconductor quantum wire and the second electron is transported along the wire, trapped in a surface acoustic wave (SAW) potential minimum. We investigate the conditions for which the Coulomb interaction between the two electrons induces entanglement. Detailed numerical investigation reveals that the two electrons can be fully spin entangled depending on the confinement characteristics of the well and the SAW potential amplitude.
