Paper Abstract

Optical quantum technology needs efficient sources for non-classical light. Solid-state emitters provide excellent mode purity, high brightness, and often also stable operation up to room temperature. At the same time the spin of individual impurities can be entangled with emitted photons. Nano-photonic structures can dramatically enhance the photon emission efficiency and thus the yield of quantum information processing tasks involving photons. One example is a node of a quantum repeater network. In this presentation we address the issue of enhanced photon collection from optically active defects in the solid-state such as diamond [1] or two-dimensional material [2]. We briefly introduce the emitters and then describe recent experiments where we couple them to dielectric/plasmonic antennas [3] and to SiO2/Si light collecting structures [4].
