Abstract

We study the second-order coherence function of a plasmonic nanoantenna fed by near-field of a single-photon source incoherently pumped in the continuous wave regime. We consider the case of a strong Purcell effect, when the single-photon source radiates almost entirely in the mode of a nanoantenna. We show that when the energy of thermal fluctuations, kT, of the nanoantenna is much smaller than the interaction energy between the electromagnetic field of the nanoantenna mode and the single-photon source, ΩR, the statistics of the emission is close to that of thermal radiation. In the opposite limit, ΩR>>kT, the nanoantenna radiates single photons. In the last case, we demonstrate the possibility of overcoming the radiation intensity of an individual single-photon source. This result opens the possibility of creating a high-intensity single-photon source.

1. Introduction

Recently, the development of single-photon sources (SPSs) has grown considerably. The main application area for these sources is the encoding/decoding of quantum information [1,2], quantum computing [3], quantum cryptography [4], and manipulations of individual quantum objects, such as qubits [2,5]. For nano-photonic applications, single photons are produced by quantum dots [6,7], single molecules [8], atoms in cavities [9], and nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers [10–12].

SPSs suitable for nanophotonic applications have an important drawback in that their radiation rate is low [13]. The characteristic radiation rate of SPSs based on solid-state quantum emitters does not exceed one radiation event per nanosecond. This radiation rate could be increased by placing an SPS inside an open resonator, i.e. using the Purcell effect [14]. This increase is proportional to the quality factor of the resonator and is inversely proportional to the volume of the resonator mode.

In nano-optics, a system consisting of an antenna and an SPS should be nanosized. Metallic plasmonic nanoantennas satisfy this requirement. In such a system, the role of the resonator mode is played by localized surface plasmons. Although the Q-factor of plasmonic structures is relatively low, due to the small volume of the modes, the Purcell factor reaches a value of ~102104 [11,12,15,16]. Then, one could expect that an SPS can radiate at the rate of one photon per picoseconds, which is much higher than the rate of SPSs based on solid-state quantum emitters, e.g. quantum dots or NV centers.

For many applications, it is important to know how the antenna-SPS system radiates. Note that when the Purcell factor is large, the SPS mainly radiates in resonator mode [17,18]. In other words, an excited SPS passes the main part of the energy to a nanoantenna, which then reradiates this energy. Since the characteristic radiation rate of plasmonic structures is several orders of magnitude greater than the radiation rate of SPS, we achieve a desirable increase in intensity.

On the other hand, since a nanoantenna without an SPS is in thermal equilibrium, it radiates as a black body with a second-order coherence function g(2)(0)=2 [19,20]. Thus, the system may no longer radiate single photons, even though g(2)(0)=0 for an SPS. This has been confirmed by recent experimental results involving measurements of the radiation statistics of plasmonic structures interacting with SPSs [21–32]. In the overwhelming majority of these experiments, g(2)(0) of the radiation of an antenna-SPS system has a value of a few tenths. Some of these experiments even demonstrate super-Poisson statistics, with g(2)(0)>1 [25,29,31]. However, if an SPS passes only one photon into the antenna mode, we can expect this photon to be radiated by the antenna before thermalization.

It has recently been theoretically shown that a plasmonic nanoantenna may produce single-photon radiation if it is excited by coherent pumping [33], or if coherent population trapping is used in a three-level system [34]. However, incoherent pumping is also widely used and more easily achieved in practical realizations of SPSs.

In this paper, we demonstrate that it is possible for an antenna-SPS system to emit single photons under incoherent pumping of the SPS. Using computer simulation, we show that for a plasmonic nanoantenna-SPS system, the values of the second-order coherence function, g(2)(0), are in the range from 0 to 2, depending on the ratio of the energy of thermal fluctuations, kT, of the nanoantenna and the interaction energy, ΩR, between the mode of the nanoantenna and the SPS. For ΩR<<kT, the Purcell factor is small, as is the part of the energy transferred from the emitter to the antenna; as a result, the nanoantenna radiates as a black body with g(2)(0)=2. For ΩR>>kT, the Purcell factor and the radiation rate are large. In such a case, the rearrangement of the quantum states of the nanoantenna effectively gives single-photon emission. In this case, g(2)(0) can reach zero. The obtained result can be used to create nanoscale ultrafast SPSs based on plasmonic nanoantennas.

2. The model

We consider a plasmonic nanoantenna, which size is much less than the radiating wavelength in a free space, fed by an SPS. We assume that the SPS is a two-level system (TLS) interacting with only one of the nanoantenna modes and transmits its energy to the nanoantenna through near-field interaction. The Hamiltonian of such a system has the form [20,35]:

H^S=ωMa^+a^+2ωTLSσ^z+ΩR(σ^+a^+a^+σ^),
where ωTLS and ωMare frequencies of the TLS transition and the antenna mode, respectively. The first term in Eq. (1) describes the nanoantenna mode; operators a^+ and a^ are the creation and annihilation operators of a plasmon in the mode, and satisfy the commutation relation [a^,a^+]=1. The second term is the Hamiltonian of the TLS; σ^+ and σ^ are transition operators from the ground, |g, to the excited, |e, states, and back, respectively; and σ^z=[σ^+,σ^] is the population inversion operator of the TLS. The last term in Eq. (1) describes the near-field interaction between the nanoantenna mode and the TLS in the Jaynes-Cummings form with the coupling constant ΩR=EMdTLS/, where dTLS is the matrix element of the dipole transition of the TLS and EM is the electric near field per one plasmon, which is defined by the relation 18πdV(εω)ω|E|2=ωM (for more detailed information about the second quantization procedure for the near field in dissipative dispersive media, see Refs [36–39].).

In the absence of the interaction between the nanoantenna and the dipole emitter, the eigenstates of the system consist of the nanoantenna and dipole emitter eigenstates, |n,e and |n,g, where n is the number of quanta in the antenna’s mode. Due to this interaction, the eigenstates of the system (|m, H^S|m=Ek|m) are split dressed states, |n,±. These states are a superposition of the states in which the antenna mode has n1 excited quanta and the TLS is in the excited state, |e, and where the mode has n quanta and the TLS is in the ground state, |g. They can be written in the form [20]:

|n,+=cosφn|n1,e+sinφn|n,g,|n,=sinφn|n1,e+cosφn|n,g,
En,±=(n+1/2)ωM±ΩR2(n+1)+(Δ/2)2,E0=ωTLS2,
where Δ=ωMωTLS and φn=tan1(2ΩRn+1/Δ)/2. Thus, the interaction between the nanoantenna and the TLS results in the rearrangement of the eigenstates of non-interacting subsystems.

To describe the losses, we introduce three reservoirs interacting with the system. The Hamiltonian of these reservoirs has the form [19,40]:

H^R=H^Rrad+H^Rdeph+H^RJ=k,λωkb^k,λ+b^k,λ+jωjb^j+b^j+jωjr^j+r^j
The first term describes the electromagnetic field of the free space, which is responsible for the radiative losses of the system. Operators b^k,λ+ and b^k,λ are creation and annihilation operators in the mode of the free electromagnetic field with wave vector k, polarization λ, and frequency ωk. The second term is a phonon bath which describes TLS dephasing, where b^j+ and b^j are the creation and annihilation operators of the phonon in the mode with frequency ωj. The third term describes Joule losses in the metal of the plasmonic nanoantenna. The creation and annihilation operators r^j+ and r^j correspond to the excitation and relaxation of a phonon in the metal. These type of losses are nonradiative.

The Hamiltonian of the interaction of the system with the reservoirs can be written as:

H^SR=k,λ[κk,λrada^+b^k,λ+κk,λrada^b^k,λ+]+jκjphσ^z(b^j+b^j+)+jκjnonrad(a^+r^j+a^r^j+).
The first term in Eq. (5) describes the interaction of modes of the free space and the plasmonic nanoantenna in the dipole approximation, H^SRrad=dMEfree, where d^M=dM(a^+a^+) is the dipole moment of the plasmonic mode of the nanoantenna with the matrix element of the dipole moment dM, Efree=k,λ2πωk/V(ek,λ*b^k,λ+eikr+ek,λb^k,λeikr) is the electric field after the second quantization procedure, and κk,λ=dMEk,λ/ is the coupling constant. The second term describes dephasing of the TLS, i.e. the process of emission and absorption of a quantum of the reservoir excitation in which the energy of the system does not change, but the average dipole moment (non-diagonal elements of its density matrix) decays [19,40]. The last term describes the interaction of phonons in the metal and the nanoantenna mode.

Using the Born-Markov approximation, and excluding reservoir variables, we obtain the master equation for the density matrix in the Lindblad form [19,41]:

tρ^S(t)=i[H^S,ρ^S]+L[ρ^S(t)],
where the Lindblad superoperator,
L[ρ^S(t)]=mmγradmm+γnonradmm2(2S^ammρ^S(S^amm)+(S^amm)+S^ammρ^Sρ^S(S^amm)+S^amm)+mmγdephmm2(2S^σzmmρ^S(S^σzmm)+(S^σzmm)+S^σzmmρ^Sρ^S(S^σzmm)+S^σzmm)+mmγpumpmm2(2(S^σmm)+ρ^SS^σmmS^σmm(S^σmm)+ρ^Sρ^SS^σmm(S^σmm)+),
describes the relaxation processes in the system due to interaction with reservoirs with rates γrad,γnonrad,γdeph, and γpump. The operators S^amm=m|a^|m|mm|, S^σmm=m|σ^|m|mm|, and S^σzmm=m|σ^z|m|mm| correspond to the transition of the system from eigenstate |m to eigenstate |m of the system Hamiltonian H^S Eq. (2) due to the interaction of the system with the reservoirs [42]. The dimensionless coefficients γmmrad,γmmnonrad, and γmmdeph can be calculated using Fermi’s golden rule. Assuming that the reservoirs are in thermal equilibrium, the Kubo-Martin-Schwinger condition holds for each of the transition rates, namely, γmmi/γmmi=e(EmEm)/kTi, where Ti is the temperature of the i-th reservoir. Note that in Eqs. (6) and (7), we add incoherent pumping of the TLS by introducing the term ~γpump, which corresponds to the transition between the eigenlevels with increasing energy [43]. We assume that the temperature of the free space reservoir is zero, Trad=0, and the temperature of the pumping reservoir is Tpump=0, so that interaction with this results in an energy transfer only from the reservoir to the system. The temperature of the reservoir of Joule losses can change. We investigate the dependence of the system behavior on this temperature. We suppose that the radiative and nonradiative losses of the nanoantenna and the TLS dephasing remain the same as for a non-interacting antenna and SPS. At the same time, the losses caused by the interaction of the TLS with the surrounding EM field in the vicinity of the nanoantenna are determined by the Rabi constant, ΩR, and differ from the case of a free non-interacting TLS.

Since the off-diagonal elements of the density matrix ρ^S decay exponentially [44], we focus solely on the diagonal elements. Denoting these as pm, and using Eqs. (6) and (7), we obtain [44]:

p˙m=mγmmpm(mγmm)pm
where
γmm=(γmmrad+γmmnonrad)|m|a^|m|2+γmmdeph|m|σ^z|m|2+γmmpump|m|σ^+|m|2.
From the system of equations in (8), we can obtain the dynamics of the diagonal elements of the density matrix. We can then use these to calculate all the average values of the operators of interest at any moment in time, as A^=Tr(ρ(t)A^)=mpm(t)m|A^|m. In the following, we consider the behavior of the second-order coherence function g(2)(0).

3. The plasmonic nanoantenna as a single-photon source

The second-order coherence function g(2)(0) can be written as [19,20]:

g(2)(0)=a+a+aa/a+a2.
Here, we assume that the nanoantenna makes the main contribution to the radiation (which is much greater than that of the SPS). This assumption is reasonable because, as it has been mentioned in [18], when an atom or a molecule is coupled to the open resonator (e.g., nanoantenna) and high Purcell factors are achieved, the main part of the radiation to the modes of a free space comes from the open resonator while the main part of the atom energy transmits directly to the open resonator. Numerical simulations show that g(2)(0) depends strongly on the ratio ΩR/kT. From Fig. 1, we can see that at low pumping power γpump<<γnonrad, g(2)(0) can take any values between 0 and 2 (the solid red curve). When the interaction is weak, ΩR<<kT, and the pump power is low, g(2)(0)=2, which means that the nanoantenna radiates as a heat source. The function g(2)(0) decreases as the coupling increases; near ΩR~kT, g(2)(0) crosses over from 2 to 0. In the limit ΩR>>kT, g(2)(0) tends to 0, corresponding to the radiation of single photons. Thus, for a sufficiently strong interaction and a low pumping rate, the plasmonic nanoantenna emits single photons, in agreement with experiment [23,27,32].

 

Fig. 1 g(2)(0) as a function of ΩR/kT at different pumping rates. For the solid, dashed, and dot-dashed curves, the pumping rates are γpump/ω=105, γpump/ω=103, and γpump/ω=0.05, respectively. The parameters used in simulations are γrad=51013s1, γnonrad=21012s1, γdeph=51012s1, and T=300K, corresponding to typical experimental values [27,32,45]. We assume here that the frequency of the nanoantenna mode and the frequency of optical transition in the SPS are the same, ω=ωM=ωTLS=2.951015s1. This frequency corresponds to a wavelength of 635nm.

It should be noted that an increase in the pumping rate, γpump~γrad, causes g(2)(0) to tend to unity, and the light from the system becomes coherent (see the dashed and dot-dashed curves in Fig. 1). This behavior corresponds to the coherent generation of the near-field in the nanoantenna; in this case, the system turns to a nanolaser. However, when only one SPS is used, this regime cannot be achieved, since the corresponding pumping rate is very high and cannot be obtained in experiments (see also Ref [45].). Thus, in the case of nanoantenna fed by one SPS, the real pumping rate is much lower than the threshold value. The case of zero pumping corresponds to the situation in which only the reservoir with a temperature greater than zero provides energy to the system. Note that at room temperature, in the optical region, the black body radiation is negligible and the system essentially does not radiate. To create radiation which can be detected, γpump should have a reasonable value that is greater than zero.

Thus, it is possible to observe single-photon emission from a nanoantenna by setting the required temperature and the pumping power of the TLS. The effect described here was obtained using a numerical simulation of Eq. (8). To clarify the mechanism of this effect, we consider a simplified model of the original problem.

4. Low-quantum excitation limit

To understand the behavior described in the previous section, we consider a simplified model of the system consisting of a nanoantenna coupled to an SPS. Let us assume that the pumping power is zero and take into account only the excitations of the lower states, Eq. (2), which give first nonzero contributions to g(2)(0).These states are |0,g, |1,+,|1,, and |2,+,|2,, and their energy splits are:

Δ1=2ΩR2+1/4(ωMωTLS)2Δ2=22ΩR2+1/4(ωMωTLS)2

Suppose for a moment that we have only the interaction with the reservoir of Joule losses, with temperature T. In this case, the system comes to thermal equilibrium with the reservoir, and the diagonal elements of the density matrix are then distributed according to Gibbs distribution [19], i.e.:

pm~eEm/kT.
where Em is the energy of the m-th eigenstate. Using Eqs. (10) to (12), we can calculate g(2)(0):

g(2)(0)=2e(2Δ1Δ2)/2kT|cosφ2|2+eΔ2/kT|sinφ2|2(|cosφ1|2+eΔ1/kT|sinφ1|2)2.

Due to the factor e(2Δ1Δ2)/2kT in Eq. (13), g(2)(0) strongly depends on (2Δ1Δ2)/2kT. In the particular case of resonance, when ωM=ωTLS=ω, we have:

Δ1=2ΩR,Δ2=22ΩR.

Hence, in the limits ΩR/kT>>1 and ΩR/kT<<1 (Fig. 1, dashed and solid curves, respectively), at zero pumping rate, we obtain:

g(2)(0)~2,ΩR/kT<<1,
g(2)(0)~exp((22)ΩR/kT)<<1,ΩR/kT>>1.

Expressions (15) and (16) are in qualitative agreement with the results of numerical simulation, as shown in Fig. 1. The obtained result can be qualitatively explained as follows. When the energy of thermal fluctuations, kT, is much higher than the interaction energy, ΩR, the occupation probabilities of the levels |n,+ and |n, are almost the same, and we effectively have equidistant levels |n of a harmonic oscillator. In thermal equilibrium, the second-order coherence function for the harmonic oscillator is g(2)(0)=2. When the energy of thermal fluctuations, kT, is much smaller than the interaction energy, ΩR, the occupation probability of the level |n, is much higher than that of |n,+, and we have a non-equidistant spectrum. In this case, g(2)(0) strongly depends on the distance between levels. At low temperature, for the energy levels given by Eq. (3) for the Jaynes-Cummings Hamiltonian (1), g(2)(0)=0.

In the case of nonzero detuning, the results are qualitatively unchanged. When ΩR/kT>>1, g(2)(0) tends to zero. However, at a fixed ratio of ΩR/kT, when the frequency of the mode is higher than the frequency of the TLS, g(2)(0) becomes larger than in the case where the frequency of the mode is smaller than the frequency of the TLS. This follows from the fact that the first nonzero contribution to g(2)(0) originates from the state with two quanta of excitation in the plasmonic mode, i.e. with n=2. The eigenstate with the minimum energy for which n=2 is |2,=sinφ2|1,e+cosφ2|2,g, see Eq. (2), where the coefficients sinφ2=((3ΩR2+(Δ/2)2Δ/2)/23ΩR2+(Δ/2)2)1/2 and cosφ2=((3ΩR2+(Δ/2)2+Δ/2)/23ΩR2+(Δ/2)2)1/2 depend on the detuning, Δ, and its sign. If Δ+, then sinφ20 and cosφ21, giving|2,~|2,g, and this state gives a nonzero contribution to g(2)(0). In the opposite case, when Δ, sinφ21 and cosφ20. The state |2,~|1,e and this state does not contribute to g(2)(0). Thus, in the case of negative detuning, g(2)(0) becomes smaller than in the case of Δ > 0. These qualitative assumptions are confirmed by Eq. (15), which obtained directly from Eqs. (10) and (11).

g(2)(0)=2p|2,+sin2φ2+p|2,cos2φ2(p|1,cos2φ1+p|1,+sin2φ1+p|2,(2cos2φ2+sin2φ2)+p|2,+(2sin2φ2+cos2φ2))2,

Figure 2 illustrates the behavior of theg(2)(0) function on the detuning Δ.

5. Radiation intensity

As can be seen from Fig. 1, we can obtain g(2)(0) close to zero only in the limit of small pumping rates, which do not allow us to achieve a radiation intensity that is sufficient to exceed the intensity level of an individual SPS. Our goal is to find a value for the pumping power at which the nanoantenna emits rapidly but can still be considered an SPS, and can be useful in practical applications. We therefore need to find the maximum pumping rate at which the nanoantenna still has a coherence function g(2)(0) close to zero, and at the same time a radiation intensity that is sufficiently high. To describe this intensity, we calculate the rate of energy emission into the reservoir of radiation losses by the nanoantenna, H˙Srad=Tr(Lrad(ρ)HS). The dependence of g(2)(0) on H˙Srad is a key characteristic of a plasmonic nanoantenna fed by an SPS. We demonstrate the possibility of overcoming the radiation intensity of an individual SPS and preserving single-photon properties for the plasmonic nanoantenna by using parameters close to ones from real experiments [27].

In sufficiently large limits of the pumping power of the SPS, the nanoantenna radiates as an SPS, and its radiation intensity is three orders of magnitude higher than that of a solitary SPS. The radiation intensity reaches one emission event per picosecond, i.e. the radiation rate increases up to THz (see Fig. 3).

 

Fig. 3 The dependence of g(2)(0) on the radiation intensity of the nanoantenna divided by the intensity of a solitary SPS, ISPS=109 ωTLSs–1. The pump rate changes from 108 s−1 to 1012 s−1; the rate of radiative and nonradiative losses are γrad=51013 s–1 and γnonrad=21012 s–1, respectively; and the the dephasing rate is γdeph=51012 s–1. The zone below the red line displays the values required for the quantum key distribution (QKD) applications. The blue line indicates the values that are required for Bell-state sources.

6. Comparison to experiments

In recent experimental work [27], the authors used a CdSe/ZnS quantum dot as an SPS, which was coupled to a plasmonic nanoantenna (a silver cube lying on the quantum dot) at room temperature. If we suppose that the nanoantenna gives the main contribution to the radiation, then this system is similar to the one considered here. The quantum dot is located at the maximum of the electric field of the plasmonic mode of the antenna. The Purcell factor of the system is F=1900, which corresponds to the Rabi constant of the interaction ΩR~Fγaγσ~51013s1, and the detuning is Δ~1013s1. In the experiment in Ref [27], the value g(2)(0)=0.32 was obtained. Using the parameters from Ref [27]. in our model, and based on Eq. (8), and the qualitative Eq. (17), we obtain that g(2)(0)=0.23. Simulations of Eq. (8) show that g(2)(0) increases slightly with γpump at the same pumping rates that were used in the experiment, while the radiation intensity reaches ~103 times the intensity of a solitary SPS, corresponding to about 1 ps per radiation event. With a further increase in γpump, g(2)(0) tends to unity (see Fig. 1).

A setting similar to that described above was used in Ref [32]. The authors used an NV center as an SPS that was coupled to a plasmonic nanoantenna (a silver cube lying at the NV center). The Purcell factor of the system is about F=200, which corresponds to a coupling constant of ΩR~1012s1; the system is at room temperature and the difference between the frequency of the plasmonic mode and the NV center is zero. The system demonstrates a high rate of emission, I = 56∙106 s–1 at γpump~1012s1, which is 90 times faster than the rate of a solitary NV center. In this experiment, the second-order coherence function is g(2)(0)=0.41. The results of simulations of Eq. (8) and those obtained from the direct substitution of parameters into Eq. (15) are qualitatively similar, giving g(2)(0)=0.6. If the pump rate is further increased, the g(2)(0) function slowly increases to unity, as shown in Fig. 1.

In both cases, the radiation intensity H˙Srad rates are larger than that for a single TLS, and may reach one radiation process per picosecond (for the parameters used in Refs [27]. and [32], the values are larger by two and three orders of magnitude, respectively). The quantitative distinction between the experimental results obtained in Refs [27]. and [32] (for the value of g(2)(0) and the radiation rates) is due to the significant difference in the Rabi constants of the systems and, consequently, the Purcell factors. Moreover, according to Fig. 3 and Eq. (17), a small negative detuning, ωM<ωTLS, can reduce the value of g(2)(0) even further, as observed in the experiment in Ref [27].

7. Conclusion

As discussed in the introduction, an attempt to increase the radiation rate of isolated SPSs by using plasmonic nanoantennas is expected to lead to the deterioration of single-photon radiation properties due to the contribution of nanoantenna (open-cavity) radiation to the total emission of the system. In the present paper, we demonstrate the possibility of a nanoantenna fed by an SPS radiating single photons at high rates. We show that the second-order coherence function of radiation, g(2)(0), depends strongly on the ratio between the energy of antenna thermal fluctuations, kT, and the interaction energy, ΩR, between the antenna near-field and the dipole moment of the SPS. When ΩR<<kT, the system radiation is similar to the emission of a single plasmonic nanoantenna in a state of thermal equilibrium with g(2)(0) reaching a value of two. This result is intuitively understandable at high temperatures, as only the nanoantenna contributes to the radiation. However, when the interaction energy is large, ΩR>>kT, g(2)(0) is close to zero, which is characteristic of single-photon emission. This result follows from the fact that when the interaction is strong, the system spectrum is rearranged, i.e. the distance between split states increases and the population of these states deviates from the Gibbs distribution. This means that the nanoantenna ceases to radiate as a thermal source. It is shown here that for a sufficiently large pumping power of the SPS, the nanoantenna emission exhibits a single-photon nature, and that its radiation rate can be increased up to 1012 s–1 (see Fig. 3). The obtained result opens the possibility of creating a fast single-photon radiation source. This would allow for the use of SPSs based on a plasmonic nanoantenna in quantum cryptography applications [4]. For instance, nanoantenna radiation meets the QKD requirements [46], with g(2)(0)<0.1 (Fig. 3, red zone) and a repetition rate greater than 109 s–1. Due to their small size and good on-chip integration, devices based on antenna-SPS systems may replace complicated and very large settings based on attenuated laser sources, which are currently widely used in QKD systems. In addition, the use of plasmonic nanoantennas as SPSs could find applications in areas such as boson sampling [47], photonic quantum walks [48] and perhaps in Bell-state sources [49] (see the blue zone in Fig. 3).

Figures (3)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 g (2) (0) as a function of Ω R /kT at different pumping rates. For the solid, dashed, and dot-dashed curves, the pumping rates are γ pump /ω= 10 5 , γ pump /ω= 10 3 , and γ pump /ω=0.05, respectively. The parameters used in simulations are γ rad =5 10 13 s 1 , γ nonrad =2 10 12 s 1 , γ deph =5 10 12 s 1 , and T=300K, corresponding to typical experimental values [27,32,45]. We assume here that the frequency of the nanoantenna mode and the frequency of optical transition in the SPS are the same, ω= ω M = ω TLS =2.95 10 15 s 1 . This frequency corresponds to a wavelength of 635nm.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 The dependence of g (2) ( 0 ) on the detuning, Δ, and the interaction constant, Ω R , obtained from Eq. (17).
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 The dependence of g (2) (0) on the radiation intensity of the nanoantenna divided by the intensity of a solitary SPS, I SPS = 10 9 ω TLS s–1. The pump rate changes from 108 s−1 to 1012 s−1; the rate of radiative and nonradiative losses are γ rad =5 10 13 s–1 and γ nonrad =2 10 12 s–1, respectively; and the the dephasing rate is γ deph =5 10 12 s–1. The zone below the red line displays the values required for the quantum key distribution (QKD) applications. The blue line indicates the values that are required for Bell-state sources.
