Low-field Onset of Wannier-Stark Localization in a Polycrystalline Hybrid Organic Inorganic Perovskite

D. Berghoff, J. Bühler, M. Bonn, A. Leitenstorfer, T. Meier, H. Kim, 2021

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title> <jats:p>Control over light propagation in a material by applying external fields is at the heart of photonic applications. Here, we demonstrate ultrafast modulation of the optical properties in the room temperature polycrystalline MAPbI<jats:sub>3</jats:sub> perovskite using phase-stable terahertz pulses, centered at 20 THz. The biasing field from the THz pulse creates extreme localization of electronic states in the <jats:italic>ab</jats:italic> plane – Wannier-Stark localization. This quasi-instantaneous reduction of dimensionality (from 3D to 2D) causes a marked change in the absorption shape, enabling the modulation depth to be tens of percent at moderate field strengths (3 MV/cm). The notably low-field onset results from a narrow electronic bandwidth, a large relevant lattice constant, and the coincidence of the two along the same direction in this tetragonal perovskite. We show that the transient optical response is in fact dominated by the least dispersive direction of the electronic band structure, facilitating a substantial modulation despite the arbitrary arrangement of the individual crystallites. The demonstration of THz-field-induced optical modulation in a solution-processed, disordered, and polycrystalline material is of substantial potential significance for novel photonic applications.</jats:p>

    Accurate photon echo timing by optical freezing of exciton dephasing and rephasing in quantum dots

    A.N. Kosarev, H. Rose, S.V. Poltavtsev, M. Reichelt, C. Schneider, M. Kamp, S. Höfling, M. Bayer, T. Meier, I.A. Akimov, Communications Physics (2020), 3

    <jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>Semiconductor quantum dots are excellent candidates for ultrafast coherent manipulation of qubits by laser pulses on picosecond timescales or even faster. In inhomogeneous ensembles a macroscopic optical polarization decays rapidly due to dephasing, which, however, is reversible in photon echoes carrying complete information about the coherent ensemble dynamics. Control of the echo emission time is mandatory for applications. Here, we propose a concept to reach this goal. In a two-pulse photon echo sequence, we apply an additional resonant control pulse with multiple of 2<jats:italic>π</jats:italic> area. Depending on its arrival time, the control slows down dephasing or rephasing of the exciton ensemble during its action. We demonstrate for self-assembled (In,Ga)As quantum dots that the photon echo emission time can be retarded or advanced by up to 5 ps relative to its nominal appearance time without control. This versatile protocol may be used to obtain significantly longer temporal shifts for suitably tailored control pulses.</jats:p>

      <jats:p>Future quantum computation and networks require scalable monolithic circuits, which incorporate various advanced functionalities on a single physical substrate. Although substantial progress for various applications has already been demonstrated on different platforms, the range of diversified manipulation of photonic states on demand on a single chip has remained limited, especially dynamic time management. Here, we demonstrate an electro-optic device, including photon pair generation, propagation, electro-optical path routing, as well as a voltage-controllable time delay of up to ~12 ps on a single Ti:LiNbO<jats:sub>3</jats:sub> waveguide chip. As an example, we demonstrate Hong-Ou-Mandel interference with a visibility of more than 93 ± 1.8%. Our chip not only enables the deliberate manipulation of photonic states by rotating the polarization but also provides precise time control. Our experiment reveals that we have full flexible control over single-qubit operations by harnessing the complete potential of fast on-chip electro-optic modulation.</jats:p>

        Realization of all-optical vortex switching in exciton-polariton condensates

        Vortices are topological objects representing the circular motion of a fluid. With their additional degree of freedom, the 'vorticity', they have been widely investigated in many physical systems and different materials for fundamental interest and for applications in data storage and information processing. Vortices have also been observed in non-equilibrium exciton-polariton condensates in planar semiconductor microcavities. There they appear spontaneously or can be created and pinned in space using ring-shaped optical excitation profiles. However, using the vortex state for information processing not only requires creation of a vortex but also efficient control over the vortex after its creation. Here we demonstrate a simple approach to control and switch a localized polariton vortex between opposite states. In our scheme, both the optical control of vorticity and its detection through the orbital angular momentum of the emitted light are implemented in a robust and practical manner.

          Generating two-mode squeezing with multimode measurement-induced nonlinearity

          M. Riabinin, P. Sharapova, T. Bartley, T. Meier, in: arXiv:1912.09097, 2019

          Measurement-induced nonclassical effects in a two-mode interferometer are investigated theoretically using numerical simulations and analytical results. We demonstrate that for certain parameters measurements within the interferometer lead to the occurrence of two-mode squeezing. The results strongly depend on the detection probability, the phase inside the interferometer, and the choice of the input states. The appropriate parameters for maximized squeezing are obtained. We analyze the influence of losses and confirm that the predicted effects are within reach of current experimental techniques.

            Spins in semiconductor quantum dots have been considered as prospective quantum bit excitations. Their coupling to the crystal environment manifests itself in a limitation of the spin coherence times to the microsecond range, both for electron and hole spins. This rather short-lived coherence compared to atomic states asks for manipulations on timescales as short as possible. Due to the huge dipole moment for transitions between the valence and conduction band, pulsed laser systems offer the possibility to perform manipulations within picoseconds or even faster. Here, we report on results that show the potential of optical spin manipulations with currently available pulsed laser systems. Using picosecond laser pulses, we demonstrate optically induced spin rotations of electron and hole spins. We further realize the optical decoupling of the hole spins from the nuclear surrounding at the nanosecond timescales and demonstrate an all-optical spin tomography for interacting electron spin sub-ensembles.

              Engineering plasmonic and dielectric directional nanoantennas

              A. Hildebrandt, M. Reichelt, T. Meier, J. Förstner, in: Ultrafast Phenomena and Nanophotonics XVIII, SPIE, 2014, pp. 89841G-8941G-6

              Optical and infrared antennas provide a promising way to couple photons in and out of nanoscale structures. As counterpart to conventional radio antennas, they are able to increase optical felds in sub-wavelength volumes, to enhance excitation and emission of quantum emitters or to direct light, radiated by quantum emitters. The directed emission of these antennas has been mainly pursued by surface plasmon based devices, e.g. Yagi-Uda like antennas, which are rather complicated due to the coupling of several metallic particles. Also, like all metallic structures in optical or infrared regime, these devices are very sensitive to fabrication tolerances and are affected by strong losses. It has been shown recently, that such directed emission can be accomplished by dielectric materials as well. In this paper we present an optimization of nanoscopic antennas in the near infrared regime starting from a metallic Yagi-Uda structure. The optimization is done via a particle-swarm algorithm, using full time domain finite integration simulations to obtain the characteristics of the investigated structure, also taking into account substrates. Furthermore we present a dielectric antenna, which performs even better, due to the lack of losses by an appropriate choice of the dielectric material. These antennas are robust concerning fabrication tolerances and can be realized with different materials for both the antenna and the substrate, without using high index materials.

                Collective effects in second-harmonic generation from split-ring-resonator arrays

                F.B. Niesler, S. Linden, J. Förstner, Y. Grynko, T. Meier, M. Wegener, in: Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics 2012, OSA, 2013

                We perform experiments on resonant second-harmonic generation from planar gold split-ring-resonator arrays under normal incidence of light as a function of the lattice constant. Optimum nonlinear conversion occurs at intermediate lattice constants.


                  Optimal second-harmonic generation in split-ring resonator arrays

                  Y. Grynko, T. Meier, S. Linden, F.B.P. Niesler, M. Wegener, J. Förstner, in: Ultrafast Phenomena and Nanophotonics XVII, SPIE, 2013, pp. 86230L-86230L-9

                  Previous experimental measurements and numerical simulations give evidence of strong electric and magnetic field interaction between split-ring resonators in dense arrays. One can expect that such interactions have an influence on the second harmonic generation. We apply the Discontinuous Galerkin Time Domain method and the hydrodynamic Maxwell-Vlasov model to simulate the linear and nonlinear optical response from SRR arrays. The simulations show that dense placement of the constituent building blocks appears not always optimal and collective effects can lead to a significant suppression of the near fields at the fundamental frequency and, consequently, to the decrease of the SHG intensity. We demonstrate also the great role of the symmetry degree of the array layout which results in the variation of the SHG efficiency in range of two orders of magnitude.

                    We design the geometrical shape of plasmonic nanostructures to achieve field patterns with desired properties. For this, we combine Maxwell simulations and automatic optimization techniques. By allowing variations of the geometrical shape, which can be based on either boxes or arbitrary polygons, we maximize the desired objective.


                      Photonic crystal waveguides intersection for resonant quantum dot optical spectroscopy detection

                      X. Song, S. Declair, T. Meier, A. Zrenner, J. Förstner, Optics Express (2012), 20(13)

                      Using a finite-difference time-domain method, we theoretically investigate the optical spectra of crossing perpendicular photonic crystal waveguides with quantum dots embedded in the central rod. The waveguides are designed so that the light mainly propagates along one direction and the cross talk is greatly reduced in the transverse direction. It is shown that when a quantum dot (QD) is resonant with the cavity, strong coupling can be observed via both the transmission and crosstalk spectrum. If the cavity is far off-resonant from the QD, both the cavity mode and the QD signal can be detected in the transverse direction since the laser field is greatly suppressed in this direction. This structure could have strong implications for resonant excitation and in-plane detection of QD optical spectroscopy.


                        Engineering high harmonic generation in semiconductors via pulse shaping

                        M. Reichelt, A. Hildebrandt, A. Walther, J. Förstner, T. Meier, in: Ultrafast Phenomena and Nanophotonics XVI, Proc. SPIE 8260, 2012, pp. 82601L

                        Paper Abstract High harmonic generation is investigated for a two-band model of a semiconductor nanostructure. Similar to an atomic two-level system, the semiconductor emits high harmonic radiation. We show how one can specifically enhance the emission for a given frequency by applying a non-trivially shaped laser pulse. Therefore, the semiconductor Bloch equations including the interband and additionally the intraband dynamics are solved numerically and the spectral shape of the input pulse is computed via an optimization algorithm. It is demonstrated that desired emission frequencies can be favored even though the overall input power is kept constant. We also suggest special metallic nano geometries to achieve enhanced localized optical fields. They are found by geometric optimization.


                          Near-field coupling and second-harmonic generation in split-ring resonator arrays

                          We simulate the linear and nonlinear optical response from split-ring resonator (SRR) arrays to study collective effects between the constituent SRRs that determine spectral properties of the second harmonic generation (SHG). We apply the Discontinuous Galerkin Time Domain (DGTD) method and the hydrodynamic Maxwell-Vlasov model to calculate the SHG emission. Our model is able to qualitatively reproduce and explain the non-monotonic dependence of the spectral SHG transmission measured experimentally for SRR arrays with different lattice constants

                            Optical experiments on second-harmonic generation from split-ring-resonator square arrays show a nonmonotonic dependence of the conversion efficiency on the lattice constant. This finding is interpreted in terms of a competition between dilution effects and linewidth or near-field changes due to interactions among the individual elements in the array.

                            Injection currents in (110)-oriented GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells: recent progress in theory and experiment

                            H.T. Duc, M. Pochwala, J. Förstner, T. Meier, S. Priyadarshi, A.M. Racu, K. Pierz, U. Siegner, M. Bieler, in: Ultrafast Phenomena in Semiconductors and Nanostructure Materials XV, SPIE, 2011

                            We experimentally and theoretically investigate injection currents generated by femtosecond single-color circularly-polarized laser pulses in (110)-oriented GaAs quantum wells. The current measurements are performed by detecting the emitted Terahertz radiation at room temperature. The microscopic theory is based on a 14 x 14 k • p band-structure calculation in combination with the multi-subband semiconductor Bloch equations. For symmetric GaAs quantum wells grown in (110) direction, an oscillatory dependence of the injection currents on the exciting photon energy is obtained. The results of the microscopic theory are in good agreement with the measurements.


                              Numerical analysis of coupled photonic crystal cavities

                              We numerically investigate the interaction dynamics of coupled cavities in planar photonic crystal slabs in different configurations. The single cavity is optimized for a long lifetime of the fundamental mode, reaching a Q-factor of ≈43, 000 using the method of gentle confinement. For pairs of cavities we consider several configurations and present a setup with strongest coupling observable as a line splitting of about 30 nm. Based on this configuration, setups with three cavities are investigated.


                                Intensity dependence of optically-induced injection currents in semiconductor quantum wells

                                The intensity dependence of optically-induced injection currents in semiconductor quantum wells is investigated numerically. Oscillatory behavior of the electron charge current transients as function of intensity and time is predicted and explained.


                                  Electrong-factor anisotropy in symmetric (110)-oriented GaAs quantum wells

                                  J. Hübner, S. Kunz, S. Oertel, D. Schuh, M. Pochwała, H.T. Duc, J. Förstner, T. Meier, M. Oestreich, Physical Review B (2011), 84(4), pp. 041301 (R)

                                  We demonstrate by spin quantum beat spectroscopy that in undoped symmetric (110)-oriented GaAs/AlGaAs single quantum wells, even a symmetric spatial envelope wave function gives rise to an asymmetric in-plane electron Land´e g-factor. The anisotropy is neither a direct consequence of the asymmetric in-plane Dresselhaus splitting nor a direct consequence of the asymmetric Zeeman splitting of the hole bands, but rather it is a pure higher-order effect that exists as well for diamond-type lattices. The measurements for various well widths are very well described within 14 × 14 band k·p theory and illustrate that the electron spin is an excellent meter variable for mapping out the internal—otherwise hidden—symmetries in two-dimensional systems. Fourth-order perturbation theory yields an analytical expression for the strength of the g-factor anisotropy, providing a qualitative understanding of the observed effects.

                                  We present a nonequilibrium ab initio method for calculating nonlinear and nonlocal optical effects in metallic slabs with a thickness of several nanometers. The numerical analysis is based on the full solution of the time‐dependent Kohn–Sham equations for a jellium system and allows to study the optical response of metal electrons subject to arbitrarily shaped intense light pulses. We find a strong localization of the generated second‐harmonic current in the surface regions of the slabs.

                                    A simulation environment for metallic nanostructures based on the Discontinuous Galerkin Time Domain method is presented. It is used to model optical transmission by silver bi‐chiral plasmonic crystals. The results of simulations qualitatively and quantitavely agree with experimental measurements of transmitted circular polarization.


                                      Numerical investigation of the coupling between microdisk modes and quantum dots

                                      S. Declair, T. Meier, J. Förstner, physica status solidi (c) (2011), 8(4), pp. 1254-1257

                                      We numerically investigate the coupling between circular resonators and study strong light‐matter coupling of single as well as multiple circular resonators to quantum‐mechanical resonators in two dimensional model simulations. For all cases, the computed resonances of the coupled system as function of the detuning show anti‐crossings. The obtained mode splittings of coupled optical resonators are strongly depending on distance and cluster in almost degenerate eigenstates for large distances, as is known from coupled resonator optical waveguides. Vacuum Rabi splitting is observed for a quantum dot strongly coupled to eigenmodes of single perfectly cylindrical resonators.


                                        Intensity-dependent ultrafast dynamics of injection currents in unbiased GaAs quantum wells

                                        The intensity dependence of optically-induced injection currents in unbiased GaAs semiconductor quantum wells grown in [110] direction is investigated theoretically for a number of well widths. Our microscopic analysis is based on a 14 x 14 band k . p method in combination with the multisubband semiconductor Bloch equations. An oscillatory dependence of the injection current transients as function of intensity and time is predicted and explained. It is demonstrated that optical excitations involving different subbands and Rabi flopping are responsible for this complex dynamics.

                                          We present an ab-initio method for calculating nonlinear and nonlocal optical effects in metallic slabs with sub-wavelength thickness. We find a strong localization of the second-harmonic current at the metal-vacuum interface.

                                            A simulation environment for metallic nanostructures based on the Discontinuous Galerkin Time Domain method is presented. The model is used to compute the linear and nonlinear optical response of split ring resonators and to study physical mechanisms that contribute to second harmonic generation.
