11 September 2018 Polarization tuning for high-fidelity fiber-coupled single photon sources
Author Affiliations +
The performance of single photon sources based on single quantum dot emitters coupled to microcavities is analyzed with respect to different conditions of polarization. Electro-optic tuning is shown as a method to tune microcavities with distributed Bragg reflector mirrors into polarization degeneracy. Typically, for large cavity polarization splitting, excitation in the linearly polarized cavity modes is the only viable method for resonantly driving a single photon source. However, polarization degenerate cavities allow for arbitrary polarization conditions. A semi-classical model is used to analyze the performance of single photon sources under different polarization conditions. Further, the effect of residual cavity polarization splitting is analyzed under pulsed excitation.
