ERC starting grant – QD-CQED A quantum dot in a cavity: A solid state platform for quantum operations

The QD-CQED project aims at implementing elementary quantum operations using semiconductor quantum dots inserted in optical microcavities. photon or entangled photon pairs will be developed and used to demonstrate quantum teleportation and entanglement swapping. With an additional carrier inside the quantum dot, our objective is also to demonstrate spin-photon entanglement and head toward the remote entanglement of two spins. (2011-2016)
