In this paper we investigate entanglement between the nuclear spin and field mode in a GaAs semiconductor. The eigenfuctions of nuclear spin in the quantized external field are obtained and thus the von Neumann entropy is evaluated explicitly. It is shown that the von Neumann entropy monotonously increases with the spin-field coupling constant but monotonously decreases with the anisotropy energy.
