Join Dr Xuedan Ma as she discusses her team’s recent effort in the development of solid-state quantum photon sources based on low-dimensional semiconductor materials.

Optical photons are ubiquitous in quantum communication and storage applications due to their long coherence times and ease to travel over long distances. On-demand quantum photon sources that may emitter single photons as quantum information carriers are especially sought after for quantum-related applications.

By molecular doping and wavefunction engineering, Dr Xuedan Ma’s team has demonstrated versatile material platforms that allow efficient single-photon generation and modulation. Approaches for achieving facile light-matter interaction by coupling the quantum photon sources to photonic structures will also be discussed.
