Abstract: We witness multipartite entanglement in the ground state of the Kitaev chain-a benchmark model of a one dimensional topological superconductor-also with variable-range pairing, using the quantum Fisher information. Phases having a finite winding number, for both short-and long-range pairing, are characterized by a power-law diverging finite-size scaling of multipartite entanglement. Moreover, the occurring quantum phase transitions are sharply marked by the divergence of the derivative of the quantum Fisher information, even in the absence of a closing energy gap.
