Abstract

We investigate the entanglement enhancement of the two-mode squeezed vacuum state using various combinations of photon additions and photon subtractions. We suppose that a sequence of N operations are performed on each mode and on a single mode of the two-mode squeezed vacuum state, each operation being photon addition or photon subtraction; then there are 2N possible combinations of operations in total. We calculate the entanglement for all the photon-added/subtracted states generated by all possible combinations for N=2, N=3, and N=4, respectively, and deduce that the combination of operations alternating between photon addition and photon subtraction enhances the entanglement most effectively, while adding or subtracting N photons repeatedly enhances the entanglement least effectively.
