Abstract

We present both experimental and theoretical investigations of a laser-driven quantum dot (QD) in the dressed-state regime of resonance fluorescence. We explore the role of phonon scattering and pure dephasing on the detuning-dependence of the Mollow triplet and show that the triplet sidebands may spectrally broaden or narrow with increasing detuning. Based on a polaron master equation approach, which includes electron-phonon interaction nonperturbatively, we derive a fully analytical expression for the spectrum. With respect to detuning dependence, we identify a crossover between the regimes of spectral sideband narrowing or broadening. We also predict regimes of phonon-induced squeezing and anti-squeezing of the spectral resonances. A comparison of the theoretical predictions to detailed experimental studies on the laser detuning-dependence of Mollow triplet resonance emission from single In(Ga)As QDs reveals excellent agreement.

  31. In order to derive the phonon scattering rates, we use parameters for InAs/GaAs QDs, which are ωb = 1 meV and αp/(2π)2 = 0.15 ps2, where ωb is the high frequency cutoff proportional to the inverse of the typical electronic localization length in the QD and αp is a material parameter (extracted from our experiments) that accounts for the difference between the deformation potential constants between electrons and holes.

In order to derive the phonon scattering rates, we use parameters for InAs/GaAs QDs, which are ωb = 1 meV and αp/(2π)2 = 0.15 ps2, where ωb is the high frequency cutoff proportional to the inverse of the typical electronic localization length in the QD and αp is a material parameter (extracted from our experiments) that accounts for the difference between the deformation potential constants between electrons and holes.

Phonon-mediated scattering rates Γ ph σ + / (blue solid and dashed lines, respectively), together with their average sum (black dashed line) and Γ ph cd (red solid line) for a phonon bath temperature T = 6.0 K. Only for large detunings Δ = ωLωx ≥ 0.5 meV these rates change appreciably. The overall magnitude of the phonon scattering rates is proportional to Ω r 2. Here we assume Ωr = 50 μeV. As is shown in the inset figure, the sum of rates Γ ph σ + + Γ ph σ = γ ph as well as Γ ph cd are constant within laser-exciton detunings over hundreds of μeV.

Numerically calculated Mollow triplet with Ω0 = 50 μeV, with γ = γ′ = 1 μeV and a phonon bath temperature of T = 6.0 K. The spectra are obtained for (a) Δ = 0 μeV and (b) Δ = 30 μeV, plotted for the case of no phonon scattering (black solid line), and with phonon scattering using the full polaron ME (red solid line) and the effective ME (blue dashed line). The latter two give almost identical spectra, which justifies the accuracy of the simpler effective ME. Additionally, the effect of renormalization of the Rabi frequency can be seen in the different Mollow triplet center-to-sideband splittings for the case of no phonon scattering (black line) in comparison to the red/blue spectra.

(a) Analytically computed spectrum as a function of detuning for three different values of r. The solid red curve shows the analytical solution [Eq. (9)] and the blue dashed curve shows the three-Lorentzian fit. Positive and negative detunings |Δ| reveal simply a mirror image of each other. The phonon parameters are taken from Fig. 2, with γcd ≈ 0.6 μeV and γph ≈ 1.6 μeV for the chosen Rabi field. Here we adjust γ and γ′ to maintain the same on-resonance FWHM value of γ side ( Δ = 0 ) 3 2 ( γ + γ ph ) + 1 2 γ γ cd = 5.6 μeV: for r = 0.7,1.0,1.81, we use γ′ (γ) as 0.4(2.4),2.2(1.8), and 5.1(0.8) μeV, respectively. (b) Extracted FWHM of the lower (blue crosses) and higher energy sideband (red inverted triangles) as a function of detuning Δ. One clearly sees a trend of either increasing or decreasing sideband line width as a function of laser detuning, depending on the value of r, where r ≈ 1 denotes the crossover. The center Mollow line exhibits the opposite trend (now shown), e.g., it decreases if the sidebands increase.

Determination of the pure dephasing rate γ′ and electron-phonon coupling strength αp. The graph shows the expected linear increase of the FWHM of the Mollow sidebands versus Ω r 2 as extracted from a power-dependent Mollow series under strictly resonant excitation (Δ = 0). A comparison between (a) the theoretical predictions (revealing a slope of 9.3×10−4 (μeV)−1) and (b) the experimental data (giving 9.8×10−4(μeV)−1) reveals best consistency for a dephasing rate of γ′ = 4.08γ = 3.43μeV and αp/(2π)2 = 0.15 ± 0.01 ps2. All other parameters are fixed according to T = 6.0 ± 0.5K, γ = 0.84 ± 0.04 μeV (784 ± 10 ps), γcd = 0.13 ± 0.01 μeV and γph = 0.34 ± 0.02 μeV (at Ωr = 22.7 μeV); the latter two rates scale with Ω r 2 and are for evaluated at Ωr = 22.7 μeV.

Detuning-dependent Mollow triplet series at P = 500 μeV, showing theoretical predictions versus experimental results for a system with r = 2.01. (a) Mollow triplet spectra for increasing negative detunings, Δ, the spectra are plotted with respect to the energetic laser position set to zero. (b) FWHM of the blue and red Mollow sideband reveal distinct sideband broadening with increasing laser-detuning. (c) Change of the relative Mollow sideband area with Δ. The theoretically expected trend can be seen.
