Paper Abstract

Quantum dot based light emitters can be used as sources of nonclassical light. We focus on the theory of InAs/GaAs quantum dots embedded in a two dimensional wetting layer at low electrical pump currents but strongly correlated electron-photon dynamics. For this purpose a self-consistent theory of transport and emission is developed. A substantial carrier heating in such devices is predicted and the relation of electrical pumping and single photon emission is analyzed within the photon-probability-cluster-expansion.
