Quantum Dots on a Knife’s Edge: Plasmonic Wedge Waveguides and Resonators with Integrated Quantum Emitters
Prof. Dr. David J. Norris, Optical Materials Engineering Laboratory, ETH Zurich, Leonhardstrasse 21, 8092 Zurich, Switzerland

Quantum optics involves the coupling of quantum emitters to their electromagnetic environment. Because this coupling is related to the concentration of the optical field, it is typ ... more
