Entanglement generation among quantum dots and surface plasmons of a metallic nanoring Academic Article uri icon


  • 2018 IOP Publishing Ltd. We study the systems of two and three quantum dots positioned near a metallic nanoring having a surface plasmon in a particular mode. Interaction of surface plasmon with quantum dots generates entanglement between quantum dots as well as among the incident and reflected modes of the surface plasmons. We show that the maximum amount of entanglement is generated among two initially unentangled quantum dots separated by distance and with interaction parameter , while entanglement among two counter-propagating modes of the surface plasmons can be generated with interdot distance and interaction parameter , where k and are the propagation vector and coupling constant, respectively. In case of three quantum dots, the maximum entanglement among the quantum dots is obtained at kd = m/3 and Finally, the scheme is straightforwardly generalized to generate quantum entanglement among N quantum dots as well as among two counter-propagating modes of the surface plasmon due to their interactions with quantum dots.
