We demonstrate a deterministic shift in phase of an input single photon by a negatively charged quantum dot in a low Q-factor, high output efficiency micropillar cavity, with values up to 2π/3.

Quantum dots (QDs) can be incorporated into solid state photonic devices such as cavities or waveguides that enhance the light-matter interaction. A near unit efficiency light-matter interaction is
Criteria for quantum dot microcavity design for a deterministic photon phase switch
This work examines the use of the electron spin degree of freedom as a means to achieve a controllable quantum switching of single photons and trains of photons in semiconductor integrated circuits.
Quantum optics of 1D atoms with application to spin-photon interfaces
Quantum phenomena give rise to new and revolutionary possibilities in the fields of computation and cryptography. The problems that are unsolvable with classical means are expected to be solved by
Material Platforms for Integrated Quantum Photonics
The pros and cons of several platforms for realizing various elementary devices are discussed, the current degrees of integration achieved in each platform are compared, and several composite platform approaches are reviewed.


A new language, Opt, is proposed for writing these objective functions over image- or graph-structured unknowns concisely and at a high level and automatically transforms these specifications into state-of-the-art GPU solvers based on Gauss-Newton or Levenberg-Marquardt methods.
however (for it was the literal soul of the life of the Redeemer, John xv. io), is the peculiar token of fellowship with the Redeemer. That love to God (what is meant here is not God’s love to men)
