ABSTRACT
A theoretical analysis of pulse propagation in a semiconductor quantum dot photonic crystal waveguide in the regime of electromagnetically induced transparency is presented. The slow light mechanism considered here is based on both material and waveguide dispersion. The group index ng for the combined system is significantly enhanced relative to slow light based on purely material or waveguide dispersion.

    Wepropose and theoretically investigate a model to realize cascaded optical nonlinearity with few atoms and photons in one-dimension (1D). The optical nonlinearity in our system is mediated by resonant interactions of photons with two-level emitters, such as atoms or quantum dots in a 1D...

    We present microphotoluminescence investigations of InAs quantum dots (QDs) integrated into self-rolling InGaAs/GaAs strained layers. The emission signal from the QDs is redshifted due to strain relaxation and increased in intensity after the strained layers are released from the substrate and...

    We directly measure the modal gain and spontaneous emission spectra in three quantum dot structures that are nominally identical except for the level of p doping to ascertain the effect that p doping has on quantum dot lasers. The maximum modal gain increases at fixed quasi-Fermi level...
