Single Photon source is demonstrated using quantum Wire

A highly efficient single-photon source based on a quantum dot in a photonic nanowire

A single photon source is demonstrated by Claudon et al (Nanophysique et semiconducteurs), in Nature Photonics using a GaAs quantum wire (2.5 um x 200 nm). The source efficiency was found to be 0.72. To enhance the extraction of light, the wire was grown on a metal (Au)-dielectric (silica) and the tip of the wire was made taper. The Photoluminescence showed bi-excitonic line with higher optical pumping. I think this is an interesting article! Those who are interested have a look:

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
