Creating polarization-entangled photon pairs from a semiconductor quantum dot using the optical Stark effect.


In typical epitaxial quantum dots (QDs) the ideally degenerate optical excitons are energy split, preventing the formation of two-photon entanglement in a biexciton decay. We use an external field, here a continuous-wave laser tuned to the QD in the ac Stark limit, to cancel the splitting and create two-photon entanglement. Quantum-state tomography is used… (More)
