      Front Cover: Positioning of single nanostructures — single quantum devices (Phys. Status Solidi B 4/2012)

      Markus Lippitz and Peter Michler

      Article first published online: 22 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201290006

      In a series of 16 articles, reports of the DFG Research Unit “Positioning of single nanostructures - single quantum devices” (FOR 730) are presented in this issue.

      Some of the topics are illustrated on the cover: The control of quantum-dot emission by integration of semiconductor nanomembranes onto piezoelectric actuators is demonstrated by Rastelli et al., pp. 687–696 (top left figure). This is a promising method for the generation of polarization-entangled photon pairs (Jöns et al., pp. 697–701, center figure). Site-controlled SiGe islands on patterned Si(001) are developed by Zhang et al., pp. 752–763 (top right figure). Zallo et al., pp. 702–709, discuss the realization of laterally ordered InAs quantum dot molecules for quantum gate applications (bottom left figure). First steps towards the electrical detection of plasmons in all-silicon pin-diodes are presented by Fischer et al., pp. 773–777 (bottom center). A self-assembled quantum dot can be coupled in a controlled way to a plasmonic nanoantenna, as demonstrated by Pfeiffer et al., pp. 678–686 (bottom right figure).

      Back Cover: Plasmonic antennas, positioning, and coupling of individual quantum systems (Phys. Status Solidi B 4/2012)

      Daniel Dregely, Klas Lindfors, Jens Dorfmüller, Mario Hentschel, Merle Becker, Jörg Wrachtrup, Markus Lippitz, Ralf Vogelgesang and Harald Giessen

      Article first published online: 22 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201290007

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Daniel Dregely et al. (see their Feature Article on pp. 666–677) investigated plasmonic Yagi-Uda antennas and measured experimentally the modes supported by the antenna geometry by means of optical near-field microscopy technique. By expanding the single antenna to a two-dimensional antenna array with the antenna axes pointing out of the substrate plane, superior directive properties were obtained compared to the single antenna. The authors present three different methods to couple quantum systems to plasmonic antennas. Two-step electron beam lithography allows for reliable positioning of core-shell quantum dots and nitrogen-vacancy centers in nanodiamonds with a sub-10 nm accuracy. The hybrid system of directive plasmonic antennas and quantum emitters can serve as an efficient single photon source. It is suitable for high-speed information transfer at optical frequencies on the nanoscale for future applications.
