About this book

This book highlights the most recent developments in quantum dot spin physics and the generation of deterministic superior non-classical light states with quantum dots. In particular, it addresses single quantum dot spin manipulation, spin-photon entanglement and the generation of single-photon and entangled photon pair states with nearly ideal properties. The role of semiconductor microcavities, nanophotonic interfaces as well as quantum photonic integrated circuits is emphasized. The latest theoretical and experimental studies of phonon-dressed light matter interaction, single-dot lasing and resonance fluorescence in QD cavity systems are also provided. The book is written by the leading experts in the field.

About the authors

Peter Michler got his Physics Diploma and his PhD degree from the University of Stuttgart in 1990 and 1994, respectively. He worked as post-doc at the Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart from 1994 to 1995. From 1995 to 1999, he was a research group leader at the University of Bremen and from 1999 until 2000 he spent a one year research stay at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 2001, he performed his habilitation at the University of Bremen and he became a professor in 2003 at the University of Stuttgart. Since May 2006, he has headed the Institute for Semiconductor Optics and Functional Interfaces at the University of Stuttgart, concentrating research on quantum dots, quantum optics, non-classical light sources and semiconductor lasers.
