Paper Abstract

We present a practical theoretical framework for describing quantum light-matter interactions and photon transport in photonic crystal chips. The semiconductor chips can include quantum dots, waveguides, coupled cavities, and integrated output couplers. Practical designs for efficient single photon sources and entangled photon sources are introduced, and the limitations, challenges, and exciting potential of developing on-chip quantum light sources are discussed.
