Semiconductor quantum materials and quantum optics

“The interaction of quantum states of matter with light encompasses a broad swath of science and technology; for instance, spanning atomic physics to telecommunications. Here, I will focus on the moderately narrow window of light interactions with semiconductor quantum matter. After a broad introduction including my highly opinionated definition of quantum matter, I will discuss three of our recent experiments covering optical states in semiconductor quantum dots, their interaction with nanofabricated microcavities, and topological edge states in single monolayers of graphite—graphene. Optical processes in quantum materials requires the interaction of many disciplines, and I will partially highlight the material science, physics and engineering aspects essential in the success of these experiments in semiconductors.”
