Pumping single photons with SAWs


Surface acoustic waves (SAWs) have were employed to demonstrate high frequency (750MHz) single-photon sources (SPS). By remotely pumping electrons and holes into a GaAs quantum well, we were able to transport and inject them into quantum dots which work as efficient SPS. Our achievements represent a novel approach in the direction of high speed quantum information processing. For more details click HERE.
