Abstract

Generating entangled states is a vital ingredient for quantum information engineering. Here, we investigate the entanglement generation between two quantum dots coupled to nanoring surface plasmons with asymmetric coupling strength g1 and g2. The dynamics of concurrence C is obtained by solving the corresponding master equation. High entanglement can be generated at appropriate times through the scatterings of the incident field and its scattered field. Furthermore, we find that maximum entanglement can be created when rg1/g2 is the ratio of odd numbers. Contrary to intuition, relative high entanglement (C1) can remain even if the ratio r is far off the required values, which is useful in real experiments.
