We present a scheme for generating entanglement between two magnetic impurities in a solid-state system via electron scattering. The scheme applies to impurities of arbitrary quantum spin number. We show that resonance conditions yield generation of a maximally entangled state of the impurities' spins, regardless of the value of the electron–impurity coupling constant and the impurity spin quantum number. The mechanism behind the scheme is explained in terms of resonance-induced selection rules.
