Abstract:
We use the quantum jump approach to study the entanglement dynamics of a quantum register, which is composed of two or three dipole-dipole coupled two-level atoms, interacting with a common environment. Our investigation of entanglement dynamics reflects that the environment has dual actions on the entanglement of the qubits in the model. While the environment destroys the entanglement induced by the coherent dipole-dipole interactions, it can produce stable entanglement between the qubits prepared initially in a separable state. The analysis shows that it is the entangled decoherence-free states contained as components in the initial state that contribute to the stable entanglement. Our study indicates how the environmental noise produces the entanglement and exposes the interplay of environmental noise and coherent interactions of qubits on the entanglement.

Abstract:
In the measurement-based model of quantum computing, a one-way quantum computer consisting of many qubits can be immersed in a common environment as a simple decoherence mechanism. This paper studies the dynamics of entanglement witness for 3-qubit cluster states in the common environment. The result shows that environment can induce an interesting feature in the time evolution of the entanglement witness: i.e., the periodical collapse and revival of the entanglement dynamics.

Abstract:
We study entanglement generation between two charge qubits due to the strong coupling with a common bosonic environment (Ohmic bath). The coupling to the boson bath is a source of both quantum noise (leading to decoherence) and an indirect interaction between qubits. As a result, two effects compete as a function of the coupling strength with the bath: entanglement generation and charge localization induced by the bath. These two competing effects lead to a non-monotonic behavior of the concurrence as a function of the coupling strength with the bath. As an application, we present results for charge qubits based on double quantum dots.

Abstract:
We revisit the quantum features of an anti-ferromagnetic (AF) spin
environment at finite temperature with gap in its frequency spectrum, on the
dynamics quantum correlations of a coupled central two qubits system with
Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interaction, prepared in two entangled Bell states.
Using entanglement and quantum discord as quantum meters of decoherence, the
prepared entangled states are classified as robust or fragile relative to the
degree of information leakage to the AF environment. By tailoring the size of
the frequency gap, anisotropy field strength and induced field, due to system
AF spin environment coupling, size of the AF environment and DM interaction
parameter, a decoherence-free sub-space can be accessed for efficient execution
of quantum protocols encoded in the entangled states.

Abstract:
We study how the environment of photonic band gap (PBG) materials affects entanglement dynamics of qubits. Entanglement between the single qubit and the PBG environment is investigated through the von Neumann entropy while that for two initially entangled qubits in this PBG reservoir is through concurrence. Dynamics of these measurements are solved in use of the fractional calculus which has been shown appropriate for the systems with non-Markovian dynamics. Entropy dynamics of the single qubit system reveals that the coupling with the PBG reservoir prevents decoherence of the qubit through the steady entropy with non-zero value. The effect of PBG reservoir on the concurrence of the two-qubit system leads to the long-time entanglement preservation. The concurrence dynamics shows that unphysical entanglement trapping does not exist in the system with the qubit frequency lying outside the PBG region. Long-time memory effect of the PBG reservoir occurs only for the qubit frequency in the PBG region. Entanglement mechanisms resulting from this long-time memory effect are discussed.

Abstract:
we investigate entropic aspects of the quantum entanglement dynamics of two-qubits systems interacting with an environment. in particular we consider the detection, based on the violation of classical entropic inequalities involving q-entropies, of the phenomenon of entanglement disappearance and subsequent entanglement revival during the alluded two-qubits' evolution.

Abstract:
We study the asymptotic entanglement of three identical qubits under the action of a Markovian open system dynamics that does not distinguish them. We show that by adding a completely depolarized qubit to a special class of two qubit states, by letting them reach the asymptotic state and by finally eliminating the added qubit, can provide more entanglement than by direct immersion of the two qubits within the same environment.

Abstract:
Interaction among the qubits are basis to many quantum logic operations. We report how such inter-qubit interactions can lead to new features, in the form of bright and dark periods in the entanglement dynamics of two qubits subject to environmental perturbations. These features are seen to be precursors to the well known phenomenon of sudden death of entanglement [Yu $&$ Eberly, Phys. Rev. Lett. {\bf 93}, 140404 (2004)] for noninteracting qubits. Further we find that the generation of bright and dark periods are generic and occur for wide varieties of the models of environment. We present explicit results for two popular models.

Abstract:
We study entanglement dynamics of a couple of two-level atoms resonantly interacting with a cavity mode and embedded in a dispersive atomic environment. We show that in the absence of the environment the entanglement reaches its maximum value when only one exitation is involved. Then, we find that the atomic environment modifies that entanglement dynamics and induces a typical collapse-revival structure even for an initial one photon Fock state of the field.

Abstract:
We investigate the stationary entanglement and stationary nonlocality of two qubits collectively interacting with a common thermal environment. We assume two qubits are initially in Werner state or Werner-like state, and find that thermal environment can make two qubits become stationary nonlocality. The analytical relations among average thermal photon number of the environment, entanglement and nonlocality of two qubits are given in details. It is shown that the fraction of Bell singlet state plays a key role in the phenomenon that the common thermal reservoir can enhance the entanglement of two qubits. Moreover, we find that the collective decay of two qubits in a thermal reservoir at zero-temperature can generate a stationary maximally entangled mixed state if only the fraction of Bell singlet state in the initial state is not smaller than 2/3. It provides us a feasible way to prepare the maximally entangled mixed state in various physical systems such as the trapped ions, quantum dots or Josephson Junctions. For the case in which two qutrits collectively coupled with the thermal reservoir at zero-temperature, we find that the collective decay can induce the entanglement of two qutrits initially in the maximally mixed state. The collective decay of two qutrits can also induce distillable entanglement from the initial conjectured negative partial transpose bound entangled states.
