Abstract

An experimentally feasible intracavity coupler scheme is proposed to generate bright quadripartite continuous-variable (CV) entanglement by the coupled second-harmonic generation processes. By solving the steady-state equations and calculating the correlation spectra of the four output beams, we show that the four output beams are all entangled with each other according to the sufficient inseparability criterion for multipartite CV entanglement. By utilizing the upconversion process, the generated four entanglement fields have macroscopic intensities as soon as the input fields are turned on.
