Realizing low-power (few-photon) nonlinear optics in a scalable way is important for both fundamental scientific studies to build strongly correlated “quantum fluids of light” and technological applications, including optical information processing. In recent years, such single photon nonlinearity has been reported using cavity coupled single emitters, including quantum dots, and atoms. However, the macroscopic size of atomic physics cavities, and stochastic spatial and spectral nature of quantum dots pose a serious problem for the scalability. In my talk, I will introduce a new platform with cavity coupled to patterned monolayer materials to accomplish this goal. I will present theoretical analysis of a coupled system of cavity-transition metal dichalcogenides and provide some preliminary experimental data on nonlinear optics with cavity and monolayer materials.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
