We present an investigation of orbital entanglement in mesoscopic conductors. Several schemes for generation of orbital entanglement are discussed, such as normal-superconducting, electron-hole and dynamic orbital entanglers. The generated, orbitally entangled state is investigated with the focus on the state emitted in an electronic analog of the optical Hanbury Brown Twiss experiment. The one and two particle properties of the emitted state are described in terms of reduced density matrices. Approaches to detect and characterize the entanglement based on zero frequency shot noise are discussed, with the focus on a complete reconstruction of the emitted state via quantum state tomography.
