Entangled radiation via a Raman-driven quantum-beat laser Academic Article uri icon


  • We propose a scheme for the entanglement generation of two cavity modes using a four-level Raman-driven quantum-beat laser (QBL). The atomic coherence is generated by a Raman-type two-photon process. Two different sufficient conditions for entanglement generation have been investigated. The effect of cavity losses and strength of the driving fields on entanglement generation is studied for different initial states of the resonant cavity modes. The results are in agreement with the earlier scheme for the entanglement generation using a directly driven quantum-beat laser. We observe entanglement generation even for high cavity losses and with low strength of the driving fields. Further, there is no dipole-forbidden transition in the Raman-driven QBL system. Thus the proposed scheme for the entanglement generation is experimentally more viable as compared to the previous directly driven QBL system.
