The total spontaneous emission rate of a quantum emitter in the presence of an infinite ${\mathrm{MoS}}_{2}$ monolayer is enhanced by several orders of magnitude, compared to its free-space value, due to the excitation of surface exciton polariton modes and lossy modes. The spectral and distance dependence of the spontaneous emission rate are analyzed and the lossy surface wave, surface exciton polariton mode and radiative contributions are identified. The transverse magnetic and transverse…

Strong coupling regime and bound states in the continuum between a quantum emitter and phonon-polariton modes.

The population dynamics of a two-level quantum emitter (QE) placed near a hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) layer is investigated, demonstrating that the h-BN layer is a platform that can provide the strong light-matter interaction conditions needed for the formation of bound states in the electromagnetic continuum of modes.

Strong coupling of quantum emitters and the exciton polariton in MoS$_2$ nanodisks

As a quasiparticle formed by light and excitons in semiconductors, the exciton-polariton (EP) as a quantum bus is promising for the development of quantum interconnect devices at room temperature.

Non-Markovian spontaneous emission dynamics of a quantum emitter near a MoS2 nanodisk

We introduce a photonic nanostructure made of two dimensional materials that can lead to non-Markovian dynamics in the spontaneous emission of a nearby quantum emitter. Specifically, we investigate

Exciton-Photon Interactions in Semiconductor Nanocrystals: Radiative Transitions, Non-Radiative Processes and Environment Effects

In this review, we discuss several fundamental processes taking place in semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots (QDs)) when their electron subsystem interacts with electromagnetic (EM) radiation.

Rapid Optical Spin Initialization of a Quantum Dot in the Voigt Geometry Coupled to a Two-Dimensional Semiconductor

We study the interaction of a quantum dot in the Voigt configuration with a laser pulse and particularly analyze the potential for rapid spin initialization by putting the quantum dot near a

Simulation of Quantum Interference and Non-Markovian Emission Dynamics Induced by Localized Exciton-Polaritons

We analyze the spontaneous emission dynamics of a V-type quantum emitter close to a molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) nanodisk. We show that a MoS2 nanodisk leads to both high-degree quantum interference

Exciton–polaritons of a 2D semiconductor layer in a cylindrical microcavity

We describe exciton-polariton modes formed by the interaction between excitons in a 2D layer of a transition metal dichalcogenide embedded in a cylindrical microcavity and the microcavity photons.

Modelling the optical control of electron spin dynamics in a quantum dot near a two-dimensional semiconductor

A quantum dot in the Voigt configuration is a basic system with important potential applications in quantum technologies. The spin states of this quantum dot can act as a prototype qubit. By applying

Light–matter interactions with photonic quasiparticles
