Generating visible single photons on demand with single InP quantum dots

Applied Physics Letters, 82(10):1509-1511.

We present photon correlation measurements performed on a device based on single InP quantum dots. The device consists of a 400 nm thick membrane containing a low density of quantum dots on a metal mirror. Measurements done under continuous excitation reveal a very pronounced antibunching dip while measurements done under pulsed excitation enable the generation of single photons on demand at the optimum wavelength for silicon-based single-photon detectors.
