Description

We are developing a regulated source of single photons by fabricating a single photon turnstile with a single quantum dot. Our goals include spontaneous emission control and delivery of the individual photons to any other on-chip location through photonic crystal waveguides. Important technologies for this project include microcavities, microdisks, photonic crystals, and nonlinear optics. We invite experimental and/or theoretical proposals that can complement and expand on this ongoing effort. Available resources include epitaxial semiconductor growth, e-beam lithography, fabrication facilities, and finite difference time domain software for electromagnetic modeling.
