Different Types of Photon Entanglement from a Constantly Driven Quantum Emitter Inside a Cavity
Bell states are the most prominent maximally entangled photon states. In a typical four-level emitter, like a semiconductor quantum dot, the photon states exhibit only one type of Bell state entanglement. By adding an external driving to the emitter system, also other types of Bell state entanglement are reachable without changing the polarization basis. In this work, it is shown under which conditions the different types of entanglement occur and analytical equations are given to explain these findings. Furthermore, special points are identified, where the concurrence, being a measure for the degree ofentanglement,dropstozero,whilethecoherencesbetweenthetwo-photon states stay strong. Results of this work pave the way to achieve a controlled manipulationoftheentanglementtypeinpracticaldevices.
