Solid-state quantum emitters are excellent sources of on-demand indistinguishable or entangled photons and can host long-lived spin memories, crucial resources for photonic quantum information applications. However, their scalability remains an outstanding challenge. Here we present a scalable technique to multiplex streams of photons from multiple independent quantum dots, on-chip, into a fiber network for use off-chip. Multiplexing is achieved by incorporating a multi-core fiber into a… Expand

On-chip deterministic operation of quantum dots in dual-mode waveguides for a plug-and-play single-photon source
A coherent and stable single-photon source that simultaneously achieves high-purity, high-indistinguishability, and >80% coupling efficiency into the waveguide, integrated with on-chip optical networks implementing photonic quantum processors. Expand
Scalable in operando strain tuning in nanophotonic waveguides enabling three-quantum-dot superradiance
Local tuning of quantum dots embedded in a photonic waveguide can be achieved through the strain produced by laser heating of a thin layer of HfO2 deposited around the waveguide and the method is exploited to tune three quantum dots in resonance. Expand
Phonon-Assisted Two-Photon Interference from Remote Quantum Emitters
This work exploits for the first time the full potential of a novel phonon-assisted two-photon excitation scheme, which allows for the generation of highly indistinguishable single photons and entangled photon-pairs, enables push-button biexciton state preparation and outperforms conventional resonant two- phoenix excitation schemes in terms of robustness against environmental decoherence.

Heterogeneous integration for on-chip quantum photonic circuits with single quantum dot devices
A heterogeneous photonic integration platform that provides coherent emission, strong light-matter coupling, low losses and scalable fabrication in a scalable on-chip implementation, and demonstrates a highly efficient optical interface between Si3N4 waveguides and single-quantum dots in GaAs geometries.

Deterministic photon pairs and coherent optical control of a single quantum dot.
The biexciton binding energy is exploited to create an extremely clean single photon source via two-photon resonant excitation of an InAs/GaAs quantum dot and full coherent control of the ground-biexciton state qubit is performed and an extended coherence time is observed. Expand

Strain-Tunable GaAs Quantum Dot: A Nearly Dephasing-Free Source of Entangled Photon Pairs on Demand.
By using a resonant two-photon excitation, the observation of nearly maximally entangled photon pairs from semiconductor quantum dots is reported, and it is suggested that this imperfection may be overcome using a modest Purcell enhancement so as to achieve fidelities >0.99, thus making quantum dots evenly matched with the best probabilistic entangled photon sources.
