Graduate Student Seminar - 10/17/2014

"A Solid-State Spin-Photon Transistor"

by Shuo Sun

Friday, October 17, 2014 -- 12:00 p.m.
Large Conference Room, 1207 Energy Research Facility

Advisor:  Associate Professor Edo Waks

We experimentally realize a spin-photon interface using a strongly-coupled quantum dot and cavity system.  We show large modulation of the cavity reflection spectrum by manipulating the spin states of the quantum dot.  The spin-photon interface is crucial for realizing a quantum logic gate or generating hybrid entanglement between a quantum dot spin and a photon.  Our results represent an important step towards semiconductor-based quantum logic devices and on-chip quantum networks.
