Using the fabrication technology developed in solid-state photonics, we create micrometer-scale device structures containing semiconductor quantum dots. We study the interaction of light with the quantum states at low temperatures. Areas of interest include non-classical properties of light, formation of entangled states, and the interaction of light and matter in microcavities. Applications include but are not limited to the development of and measurement protocols for single and entangled light sources where the light is channeled on or off chip, low threshold lasers, and state preparation and readout for quantum information applications.
