Integrated on‐demand single‐photon sources are critical for the implementation of photonic quantum information processing systems. To enable practical quantum photonic devices, the emission rates of solid‐state quantum emitters need to be substantially enhanced and the emitted signal must be directly coupled to an on‐chip circuitry. The photon emission rate speed‐up is best achieved via coupling to plasmonic antennas, while on‐chip integration can be realized by directly coupling emitters to…
