Can we make indistinguishable photons and deterministic quantum memories from quantum dots? - Dr Ruth Oulton

I will outline the recent progress made by the quantum dot group on progress towards indistinguishable deterministic single photon sources and quantum memories.  I will then discuss our future plans.  In particular, I will outline new theoretical “one-dimensional cavity QED” models which do not rely on high Q-factor photonic structures and should produce high fidelity photons with very high efficiency.  I will also discuss potential practical solutions to improve coupling efficiency of the QD-photonic system to fibres to allow efficient delivery of photons to the end-user for potential quantum optics experiments.
