The theory of two-photon dipole-dipole blockade is developed for the study of a controlled generation of pure maximally entangled Bell states with correlated atoms that involve two or zero excitations. The proposed blockade mechanism inhibits transitions into singly excited collective states of a two-atom system by shifting their resonance frequencies.
