Welcome. We investigate the interaction of light with semiconductor materials and device structures. We use quantum optics techniques first used in atomic physics, in conjunction with solid-state semiconductor crystal growth and processing to investigate our own particular flavor of semiconductor quantum optics. General topics are the statistics and dynamics of light emitted from semiconductor nanostructures, and light-matter interactions using microcavities. Decoherence through coupling to various reservoirs is an important issue and interest. While we often work to emulate pristine atomic systems, we believe the robust quality of solid-state materials and devices offers scaleable, chip-scale integrated systems for quantum information applications.

We are interested in making turn-key quantum light sources that can easily be used by researchers in various fields with little knowledge of how they work. Here is an example of a single photon light source that requires no filtering (no polarizers, no spectrometer, etc.). In...
