Abstract

We investigate the Fano resonance of the scattering spectra in a system consisting of a metal nanowire coupled to two colloidal quantum dots. By varying the coupling strengths and the energy spacings of the quantum dot qubits, we find that both the line shapes and the presence of the Fano resonance can be controlled. Furthermore, the degree of two-qubit entanglement can vary from unity to zero when the Fano resonance occurs. This indicates that there exists correlations between the two-qubit entanglement and the Fano resonance.
