Controlling the Biexciton-Exciton Cascade Kinetics in a Quantum Dot via Coupling to a Microcavity Optical Mode

Title variants
Languages of publication
The luminescence of single and two exciton states in a quantum dot embedded in the active layer of a micropillar cavity has been investigated. Temperature tuning has been used to bring the energy states of the quantum dot and the cavity into resonance. Studying the resonance behavior of the exciton and biexciton transitions with cavity mode revealed a similar Purcell effect for both lines. The cavity-induced changes of the respective radiative lifetimes have been shown to allow for controlling the ratio between the single and two exciton occupation and their relative emission rates in a single quantum dot.
