Paper Abstract

Here we show our architectural approaches to nanophotonics to benefit from unique physical properties obtained by local interactions between nanometric elements, such as quantum dots, via optical near fields, that provide ultra high-density integration capability beyond the diffraction limit of light. We discuss a memory-based architecture and a simple hierarchical architecture. By using resonant energy levels between quantum dots and inter-dot interactions, nanometric data summation and broadcast architectures are demonstrated including their proof-of-principle experimental verifications using CuCl quantum dots. Through such architectural and physical insights, we are seeking nanophotonic information systems for solving the integration density limited by diffraction limit of light and providing ultra low-power operations as well as unique functionalities which are only achievable using optical near-field interactions.
