Single Photons from Single Quantum Dots — New Light for Quantum Information Processing

In: Advances in Solid State Physics, ed. by R. Haug. Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, chap. Single Photons from Single Quantum Dots — New Light for Quantum Information Processing, pp. 3-15.

In this paper, we discuss the prospects of single quantum dots for single-photon generation and their implementation in quantum information experiments. We review the characterization of quantum dot emission and, as an example, report a recently demonstrated application in a quantum cryptography protocol.
