Coupling of quantum emitters, and the exploitation of multi-photon quantum interference, is the next challenge for generation optical information technology and quantum computation. The aim of this proposal is to achieve long-range coupling of two or more quantum emitters, understanding the fundamental mechanisms of light transport, nano-optical emission control and resulting collective phenomena, such as super-radiance and lasing.
A model system will be realised where the light originated from one quantum emitter is transported to the next one by a combination of photonic crystal waveguide and optical nano-antennas which together act as a bridge for light transport from the micrometer to nanometer scale.
