Abstract

Artist view of an optical antenna based on a tailored photonic wire, as it is discussed by J. Claudon et al. on p. 2393. The antenna exploits both the broadband spontaneous emission control offered by a single-mode photonic wire and the engineering of its far-field emission, using a planar mirror and a top conical taper. By inserting a quantum dot inside the wire, one realizes a very bright single-photon source. Beyond this first application, such a structure opens appealing perspectives for the future developments of solid-state quantum optics.
