Multipoint Light Emitting Optical Fibers (MPF) has been recently demonstrated as a versatile tool for spatially
addressable optogenetics experiments. Their fabrication has been possible thanks to a number of key microfabrication
technologies, in particular the unique nanofabrication capabilities of a Focused Ion Beam. This work provides the
complete description of MPF fabrication, detailing the optimization process for each fabrication step.
Colloidal nanocrystals, i.e. quantum dots synthesized trough wet-chemistry approaches, are promising nanoparticles for
photonic applications and, remarkably, their quantum nature makes them very promising for single photon emission at
room temperature. In this work we describe two approaches to engineer the emission properties of these nanoemitters in
terms of radiative lifetime and photon polarization, drawing a viable strategy for their exploitation as room-temperature
single photon sources for quantum information and quantum telecommunications.
