Title: Manipulating the coupling strength in a strongly coupled quantum dot-cavity system
Abstract: We report on high-resolution photocurrent (PC) spectroscopies of a single self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum dot (QD) embedded in an n-i-Schottky device. For a positive charged trions (X+) in a single quantum dot, giant enhancement of photocurrent has been achieved because of the Coulomb repulsion between the two holes. Furthermore, strong coupling for cavity QED between different excitonic states in a single quantum dot and the cavity will be presented with a two-photon Rabi splitting. Both exciton and biexciton transitions couple to a high quality factor photonic crystal cavity with large coupling strengths over 130 μeV. Finally, strong interactions between cavities and p-shell excitons with a great enhancement by the in situ wave-function control will be demonstrated because of the large wave-function extents and nonlocal interactions beyond the dipole approximation with a large coupling strength of 210 eV being achieved.
