In the project, photonic nanostructures will be employed for controlling emission of light from semiconductor quantum dots. We propose fabricating ultra compact and high quality optical cavities in photonic crystals. Such nano-cavities will provide a new technology for effective low-threshold lasers and single-photon sources. Furthermore, the project will contribute to fundamental understanding of quantum optical properties of solid-state nanostructures, and their potential for scalable quantum logic.
