Paper Abstract

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.
