4 This shows the promising potential of photonic crystal waveguides for efficient single-photon sources. Quantum dots that couple to a photonic crystal waveguide are found to decay up to 27 times faster than uncoupled quantum dots. Phys. Rev. Lett. 101, (2008) 4 Germany SE DR

5 J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 20, (2008) Discuss the recently discovered non-resonant coupling mechanism between quantum dot emission and cavity mode for large detuning. Spectral dot–cavity detuning is discussed on the basis of shifting either the quantum dot emission via temperature tuning or the cavity mode emission via a thin film deposition technique. 5 Germany
