Abstract

We show that entanglement between three two-level atoms can be generated if the three atoms interact with a common structured reservoir, but do not interact directly with each other. Comparing with the results in Markovian case, we find that much higher values of bipartite and tripartite entanglement can be obtained for an initially factorized state of the tripartite system. The maximal value of entanglement depends on the detuning and the strength of relative coupling between the atoms and the reservoir.
