Interfacing single photons and single quantum dots with photonic nanostructures
Photonic nanostructures provide means of tailoring the interaction between light and matter and the past decade has witnessed a tremendous experimental and theoretical progress in this subject. In
Chiral quantum optics
E engineered directional photonic reservoirs could lead to the development of complex quantum networks that, for example, could simulate novel classes of quantum many-body systems.
Single-photon non-linear optics with a quantum dot in a waveguide
It is shown that a single quantum dot in a photonic-crystal waveguide can be used as a giant non-linearity sensitive at the single-photon level and paves the way to scalable waveguide-based photonic quantum-computing architectures.
Controlling the dynamics of spontaneous emission from quantum dots by photonic crystals
This work shows that the spectral distribution and time-dependent decay of light emitted from excitons confined in the quantum dots are controlled by the host photonic crystal, providing a basis for all-solid-state dynamic control of optical quantum systems.
Near-unity coupling efficiency of a quantum emitter to a photonic crystal waveguide.
The β factor is found to be remarkably robust to variations in position and emission wavelength of the quantum dots, and demonstrates the extraordinary potential of photonic crystal waveguides for highly efficient single-photon generation and on-chip photon-Photon interaction.
Deterministic photon-emitter coupling in chiral photonic circuits.
It is shown that the helicity of the optical transition of a quantum emitter determines the direction of single-photon emission in a specially engineered photonic-crystal waveguide.
Strongly modified plasmon-matter interaction with mesoscopic quantum emitters
Light-emitting quantum dots are usually assumed to behave as perfect point-source emitters. It is now found that this assumption breaks down when quantum dots are placed near structures that support
Statistical analysis of time-resolved emission from ensembles of semiconductor quantum dots: Interpretation of exponential decay models
We present a statistical analysis of time-resolved spontaneous emission decay curves from ensembles of emitters, such as semiconductor quantum dots, with the aim of interpreting ubiquitous
Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics with Anderson-Localized Modes
A fundamentally different approach in which disorder is used as a resource rather than a nuisance is demonstrated, generating strongly confined Anderson-localized cavity modes by deliberately adding disorder to photonic crystal waveguides.
Finite-element modeling of spontaneous emission of a quantum emitter at nanoscale proximity to plasmonic waveguides
We develop a self-consistent finite-element method to quantitatively study spontaneous emission from emitters in nanoscale proximity of plasmonic waveguides. In the model, it is assumed that only one
