Abstract: In the case of two qubits, all pure entangled states can be made useful for sub-shot-noise interfer- ometry [1]. However, with non-optimal two-qubit states, the value of quantum Fisher information provides just a sufficient condition in the task of detecting the degree of entanglement of a generic state. We show analytically that for a large class of one-parameter non-optimal two-qubit states, the maximally entangled states are associated with stationary points of the quantum Fisher infor- mation, as a function of such parameter. We show, via numerical simulations, that this scenario is maintained for the generalization of this class of states to a generic M-qubits system. Furthermore, we suggest a scheme for an interferometer able to detect the entanglement in a large class of two-spin states.
