Abstract

We demonstrate that single photons can be generated from single InAs/GaAs quantum dots in photolithographically defined pillar microcavities. Pillars with a 1.9 µm diameter cavity show a four fold enhancement in the radiative decay rate due to the Purcell effect and a photon collection efficiency into a lens of up to 10%. Measurements of the second order correlation function reveal a greater than fifty fold reduction in the multi-photon emission rate compared to a laser of the same intensity.

Time-resolved decays of an exciton (X) line on resonance (red line) and away from resonance (black line) with the cavity mode at 5 K with and excitation density of 0.3 W cm-2. Insert: micro-PL spectra from the same pillar with and X state resonant with the cavity mode under low (red, 0.3 W cm-2) and high excitation levels (black, 0.9 KW cm-2).
