Highly Entangled Photon Pairs from Semiconductor Quantum Dots

Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) obtained by epitaxial growth are regarded as one of the most promising solid-state sources of triggered single and entangled photons for applications in emerging quantum communication and photonic quantum-information-processing. In this talk, I will introduce the “features and bugs” of QDs in view of their potential applications, followed by a presentation of some of our recent results. In particular, I will focus on GaAs QDs in AlGaAs matrix [1,2], which show a unique combination of appealing features: fast radiative rates, capability of generating near perfectly entangled photon pairs [3] with good indistinguishability [4] and ultralow multiphoton emission probability [5], as well as compatibility with high-throughput photonic structures [6]. These properties were recently used to implement photonic quantum teleportation using photons sequentially emitted by the same quantum dot [7]. I will also show that some of the QD “bugs” can be fixed by integrating them onto piezoelectric actuators [8-12]. Strain provided by such actuators is a powerful tool to bring the emission energy of separate dots into resonance [11], restore broken symmetries [3,10], and also change the polarization properties of the emitted photons [2,12]. I will conclude by discussing the open challenges. References [1] A. Rastelli et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 92, 166104 (2004). [2] Y. Huo et al., Nature Phys. 10, 46 (2014). [3] D. Huber et al., Phys.

Physik-Bachelor und -Master reakkreditiert


asiin-siegel_2016_b
Auf der Grundlage des erfolgreich verlaufenen Audits im Dezember 2015 hat ASIIN unsere Physik-Studiengänge (B.Sc. und M.Sc.) reakkreditiert und damit die hohe Qualität der Augsburger Physik-Ausbildung bestätigt. Beide Studiengänge haben sowohl das Siegel des Akkreditierungsrats als auch das ASIIN-Fachsiegel erhalten. Die Siegel sind bis zum 30. September 2022 gültig.
