27 February 2015 Strategies for optical integration of single-photon sources
Author Affiliations +
Single-photon sources based on solid-state emitters, like quantum dots, molecules or defect centers in diamond, are one of the key components for an integrated quantum technology. Here, we will show different strategies used in order to integrate single-photon emitters. Among others, we introduce an hybrid approach using photon emission from defect centers in diamond and laser-written photonic structures. Waveguides, microresonators, and optical antennas can be fabricated and oriented with respect to the single emitters. We describe our general approach before we specifically address the problem of efficient single-photon collection through optical antennas. We discuss the limitations of the method, its potential for scalability as well as its extension towards optical sensing applications.
