Abstract

We study the optical emission of single semiconductor quantum dots weakly coupled to a photonic-crystal micro-cavity. The linearly polarized emission of a selected quantum dot changes continuously its polarization angle, from nearly perpendicular to the cavity mode polarization at large detuning, to parallel at zero detuning, and reversing sign for negative detuning. The linear polarization rotation is qualitatively interpreted in terms of the detuning dependent mixing of the quantum dot and cavity states. The present result is relevant to achieve continuous control of the linear polarization in single photon emitters.

Figures (5)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

(Color online) PL spectra of QD1, QD2 and CMX at two orthogonal polarizations (X-black and Y-red). Spectra were taken at 7K and with excitation resonant at the p states. QD1 emission is almost perpendicularly polarized to CMX and QD2 emission is parallel to it. Inset: SEM image of the microcavity with the location of QD1 and QD2.

(Color online) (a) (b) (c) Temperature dependent PL spectra of QD1, QD2 and CMX. Black (red) lines correspond to X (Y) polarization. Blue arrows indicate the sign of Δ. (d) (e) (f) QD1 polarization polar plots for the three temperatures shown below. A clear rotation of the polarization angle Φ is observed as the detuning is changed. Φ = 0° (90°) corresponds to X (Y) polarization.

Fig. 3

(Color online) Polarization angle of QD1 emission recorded as a function of its detuning. The detuning was varied by changing the sample temperature (black dots). Blue squares correspond to measurements at the same temperature but changing the CM energy by using Xe thin-film deposition. The dashed line is a guide to the eye. Red triangles represent the polarization degree as a function of the detuning. Insets: Hybridized states for negative (top left) and positive (bottom right) detuning.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

(Color online) Temperature dependent PL spectra of QD2, CMX and CMY. Black (red) lines correspond to X (Y) polarization. The QD2 energy at 55K is marked by the arrow. Inset: PL spectra at 55K and higher excitation intensity. QD2 emission remains X-polarized even when its energy approaches the CMY.

(Color online) (a) Second order auto-correlation function of QD1 for Y polarization and 35 K (black trace). The red line is the smoothed curve of the experimental data. (b) Smoothed curves of g(2)(τ) of the Y-polarized QD1 emission for different detunings showing similar antibunching peaks.
