The atom-photon entanglement is intrinsic to any system interacting with quantized
radiation fields including the electromagnetic vacuum. We show how this intrinsic
property can be used to create atomic coherences as well as atom-atom entanglement.
Appropriate detection schemes can be developed to generate wide variety of entangled
states like EPR, GHZ, W, and Dicke states. The projective measurements can entangle
systems which have never interacted and thus one can entangle mesoscopic as well
as remote systems. The efficiency of optical processes can be enhanced by using
entangled states for which quantum interferences play a dominant role.
Professor Girish Agarwal specializes in quantum optics and is the author of
“Quantum Optics” recently published by the Cambridge University Press.
He currently holds the Noble Foundation Chair and Regents Professorship
at Oklahoma State University. His work has been recognized by a large
number of awards, including the Max-Born Prize from the Optical Society of
America in 1988, the physics prize of the TWAS, the Humboldt Research
Award (1997) of Germany and Honorary doctorates from the University of
Liege, Belgium and the University of Hyderabad. He held the Indian
National Science Academy’s Albert Einstein Research Professorship and
he was elected fellow of several societies-The Royal Society (UK),
American Physical Society; Optical Society of America, Indian National
Science academy, TWAS. He was Director of the Physical Research
Laboratory, Ahmedabad, India and has served on the editorial boards of
several journals in Optics and Physics.
