Quantum entanglement under an extensive bipartition can reveal the critical boundary theory of a topological phase in a parameter space. In this study we demonstrate that the infinite-randomness fixed point for spin-12 degrees of freedom can emerge from an extensive random bipartition of the spin-1 Affleck-Kennedy-Lieb-Tasaki chain. The nested entanglement entropy of the ground state of the reduced density matrix exhibits a logarithmic scaling with an effective central charge c=0.72±0.02≈ln2. We further discuss, in the language of bulk quantum entanglement, how to understand all phase boundaries and the surrounding Griffiths phases for the antiferromagnetic Heisenberg spin-1 chain with quenched disorder and dimerization. © 2016 American Physical Society.
