Suspended epoxy polymer inverted tapers for scalable fibre-coupled single-photon devices

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedings

The combination of integrated nanophotonic circuits and single quantum emitters holds great promise for scalable quantum information processing (QIP) and for the realization of photonic quantum networks. Efficient and deterministic sources of highly-pure and indistinguishable single photons have been demonstrated using quantum dots (QDs) in GaAs nanostructures [1], enabling the integration with planar circuitry. However, the efficient out-coupling of light from the chip into optical fibres, required for communication with distant quantum nodes and photon storage, remains a challenging task. Here, we report a spot-size converter for the end-fire coupling between suspended GaAs waveguides with embedded QDs and lensed fibres.
