Paper Abstract

Dynamics of spontaneous decay and corresponding emission spectrum are exactly treated for a system of two identical two-level atoms in 1D. Just a one-dimensional case is considered in order to maximally extract an information on mutual influence of spatially remote atoms through the radiation field. As a result, an effect is revealed and considered in detail that there exist stable (metastable) entangled states at definite distances between the atoms. That state is supported by a (quasi)stationary field bounded between the atoms. Also, a correspondence is established between the lifetime and emission spectrum, and possibilities for observing the effect are discussed.
