New Book on Potential of Semiconductor Nanostructures in Exploration of Quantum Optics

Research and Markets has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Quantum optics with semiconductor nanostructures" to their offering.

Quantum optics with semiconductor nanostructures is a key guide to the theory, application and potential of semiconductor nanostructures in the exploration of quantum optics.

Part one begins with an overview of resonance fluorescence emission. Quantum optics with single quantum dots in photonic crystal and micro cavities are explored in detail, before part two goes on to review nanolasers with quantum dot emitters. Light-matter interaction in semiconductor nanostructures, including photon statistics and photoluminescence, is the focus of part three, whilst part four explores all-solid-state quantum optics, crystal nanobeam cavities and quantum-dot microcavity systems. Finally, part five investigates ultrafast phenomena, including femtosecond quantum optics and coherent optoelectronics with quantum dots.

Key Topics Covered:

Part 1 Single quantum dot systems: Resonance fluorescence emission from single semiconductor quantum dots coupled to high-quality microcavities

  • Quantum optics with single quantum dots in photonic crystal cavities
