Nanomembranes are thin, transferable and can be shaped into almost arbitrary geometries. We embed high quality quantum emitters into III-V semiconductor nanomembranes and transfer them onto piezoelectric substrate actuators. By applying external piezoelectric stress, the quantum properties of single photon emitters can be accurately tuned and major steps towards a viable quantum communication technology have been reached. We also strain engineer thin SiOx based nanomembranes and shape them into fully integratable microtubular microcavities. These novel microarchitectures show photonic spin-orbit coupling, controlled coupling of surface plasmons to optical resonator modes as well as a high compatibility to new 3D integration schemes.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
