TRR 142 - Ultrafast coherent opto-electronic control of a photonic quantum system (B06*)

In this project we will integrate semiconductor quantum dots in field-tunable microcavity heterostructures to achieve ultrafast coherent opto-electronic control of the emitter cavity coupling. By tuning different quantum dot transitions in and out of the cavity resonance we aim to generate (i) cavity assisted two-photon emission, (ii) hyper ...
