Cavity-based single-photon sources

Abstract:

We introduce the basic concepts and characteristic properties of single-photon emitters based on resonator effects in optical cavities, and provide a review of the most prominent implementations. First we discuss the elementary principles of cavity quantum electrodynamics, which determine how single quantum systems couple to the quantised field modes of optical resonators, and then show how to exploit these principles in order to generate single photons on demand. Furthermore, we elucidate ho...
