Abstract

We propose to use nanoantennas (NAs) coupled to incoherently pumped quantum dots for ultrabright single photon emission. Besides fully quantum calculations, we analyze an analytical expression for the emitted photon rate. From these analytical considerations, it turns out that the Purcell factor and the pumping rate are the main quantities of interest. We also disclose a trade-off between the emitted photon rate and the nonclassical nature of the emitted light. This trade-off has to be considered while designing suitable NAs, which we also discuss in depth.
