Abstract

We demonstrate highly efficient evanescent coupling via a silica loop-nanowire, to ultra-small (0.5 (λ/n)3), InAs/InP quantum dot photonic crystal cavities, specifically designed for single photon source applications. This coupling technique enables the tuning of both the Q-factor and the wavelength of the cavity mode independently, which is highly relevant for single photon source applications. First, this allows for the optimization of the extraction efficiency while maintaining a high Purcell factor. Second, the cavity mode can be matched with a spectrally misaligned quantum dot without changing the structure or degrading the Q-factor: a 3 nm resonance shift is reported.

(a) Extraction efficiency (left axis) and Purcell factor (right axis) as a function of the net QT -factor of the cavity. The extraction efficiency has been plotted for three different values of Q0 , respectively of 3000 (black), 10000 (green) and 50000 (blue) as well as two different mode volumes V of 0.5×(λ/n)3 (solid line) and 1.5×(λ/n)3 (dotted line). (b) Figure of merit defined by the product of the Purcell factor with the extraction efficiency ε as a function of QT , for a mode volume V of 0.5× (λ/n)3 and three different values of Q0 . The case ε=1 is also represented.
