Abstract :

Nanowires offer new opportunities for nanoscale quantum optics; the quantum dot

geometry in semiconducting nanowires as well as the material composition and

environment can be engineered with unprecedented freedom to engineer high-

performance single photon sources.In addition because of the very small fine

structure splitting, entangled pairs of photons can be generated from a nanowire and

will discuss the limiting factors in entanglement measurements.

 Another type of nanowire under study in our group is superconducting nanowires for

single photon detection, reaching efficiencies, time resolution and dark counts far

beyond currently available detectors. We will present our first attempts at realizing

integrated quantum circuits.
