Full text of article: Russian language.

Abstract:
The entanglement between two dipole-coupled identical two-level atoms resonantly interacting with one-mode thermal field in lossless cavity has been investigated. The dependence of dipole strength on the degree of entanglement has been carried out for different pure and mixed atomic states.

Key words:
two identical two-level atoms, atomic entanglement, thermal field, dipole-dipole interaction.
