Quantum optics with semiconductor nanostructures (Woodhead Publishing Series in Electronic and Optical Materials)


An understanding of the interaction between light and matter on a quantum level is fundamental to understanding optical technologies and has many applications in this area. The quantum nature of the interaction has recently attracted great attention for applications of semiconductor nanostructures in quantum information processing. Professor Frank Jahnke provides a key guide to the theory, experimental realization, and future potential of semiconductor nanostructures in the exploration of quantum optics.

Part one provides an overview of single quantum dot systems, beginning with a look at resonance fluorescence emission, before the second section goes on to explore nanolasers with quantum dot emitters. The next two parts focus on light-matter interaction in semiconductor nanostructures and explore all-solid-state quantum optics, crystal nanobeam cavities and quantum-dot microcavity systems. Finally, the concluding group of chapters investigates ultrafast phenomena, including femtosecond quantum optics and coherent optoelectronics with quantum dots.
