Full text of article: Russian language.

Abstract:
The entanglement between two identical two-level atoms successively passing cavity and interacting with one-mode thermal field through a degenerate two-photon process is investigated. It is shown that two atoms can be entangled through such nonlinear interaction.

Key words:
two two-level atoms, non-degenerate two-photon transitions, atomic entanglement, thermal field.
