3rd International Workshop on Theoretical and Computational Nano-Photonics

    Activity: Attending an eventParticipating in or organising workshops, courses, seminars etc.


    The International Workshop on Theoretical and computational Nanophotonicss ( TaCoNa-Photonics 2010); 3

    An electrically-pumped single-photon source design with a predicted efficiency of 89% is proposed. The design is based on a quantum dot embedded in a photonic nanowire with tailored ends and optimized contact electrodes. Unlike cavity-based approaches, the photonic nanowire features broadband spontaneous emission control and an improved tolerance towards fabrication imperfections. The various builidng blocks of the design are analyzed using an elements-splitting approach.
