Plasmon-Induced Trap State Emission from Single Quantum Dots

February 14, 2023

We aim to make new light sources on optical chips, based on tiny chunks of semiconductor called ‘quantum dots’. To electrically stimulate them to produce light, we connect them to special electronic contacts that also greatly speed up their light emission. We show in this work how strong light can emerge from electrons on their surfaces.
