Paper Abstract

We describe our work on development of high efficiency single photon sources based on the interaction of InAs quantum dots with a photonic crystal micro-cavity. Sub-poisson statistics and lifetime modifications are experimentally demonstrated. We then investigate improvement of the source using coupling to a photonic crystal waveguide for easy collection. We analyze the system using coupled mode theory, and infer the parameters needed to create good coupling efficiency.
