Sudden death and birth of entanglement in photonic crystals Academic Article uri icon


  • We explore the entanglement dynamics of two qubits embedded in one-dimensional (1D) and three-dimensional (3D) photonic crystals. Our 1D results show sudden death and sudden birth of the entanglement, restricted by the initial coherence and the population in the excited state as well as the detuning. The results for the 3D crystal show entanglement death but no birth. We also discuss the entanglement of N qubits in the aforementioned photonic crystals. 2009 The American Physical Society.
