We investigate in this paper the dynamics of entanglement between a QD spin qubit and a single photon qubit inside a quantum network node, as well as its robustness against various decoherence processes. First, the entanglement dynamics is considered without decoherence. In the small detuning regime (Delta = 78 mu eV), there are three different conditions for maximum entanglement, which occur after 71, 93, and 116 picoseconds of interaction time. In the large detuning regime (Delta = 1.5 meV), there is only one peak for maximum entanglement occurring at 625 picoseconds. Second, the entanglement dynamics is considered with decoherence by including the effects of spin-nucleus and hole-nucleus hyperfine interactions. In the small detuning regime, a decent amount of entanglement (35% entanglement) can only be obtained within 200 picoseconds of interaction. Afterward, all entanglement is lost. In the large detuning regime, a smaller amount of entanglement is realized, namely, 25%. And, it lasts only within the first 300 picoseconds.
