Abstract

We consider the dynamics of a system consisting of two two-level atoms interacting with the electromagnetic field near a cylindrical optical black hole. We obtain the reduced density operator of the two-atom system in the weak coupling regime for the case where one atom is in the excited state and the other in the ground state. The time evolution of the negativity between the atoms is discussed for two nonresonance and resonance cases. In both cases, we show that the two atoms can become entangled due to the indirect interaction mediated through the optical black hole.
