Editorial Reviews


"Written by top authors from academia and industry, this is the only textbook focused on single-photon devices and thus fills the gap for a readily accessible update on the rapid progress in the field." (ETDE Energy database, 1 July 2011)

About the Author

Charles Santori, after having earned his degrees and resarch experience at Stanford, Tokyo University and MIT, joined the Hewlett-Packard Labs to be tasked with the high gain, high risk research on quantum computing.
Numerous papers and awards prove his standing.
David Fattal has received his higher degrees at the Ecole Polytechnique in France and at Stanford. Then he joined HP to perform research on various aspects of quantum information and nanophotonics.
Professor Yoshihisa Yamamoto has performed his research at Tokyo University, MIT, Stanford and other prestigious institutions before he became professor at Stanford.
He teaches various courses on quantum optics and has published more than 350 papers and two books.

Format: Paperback
These authors are responsible for many of the most significant scientific advances in solid-state single-photon generation and cavity quantum electrodynamics over the last 20 years. Although this book is not necessarily written for novices (e.g., familiarity with basic quantum and nonlinear optics would be very helpful), the treatment of single-photon emission they present is thorough and up-to-date. The book is particularly noteworthy for its careful, detailed, and practical discussions of the theory behind the most successful experimental approaches to generating and characterizing single photons. For example, three of the most promising "artificial atoms" under active investigation in the peer-reviewed literature--semiconductor quantum dots, nitrogen-vacancy color centers in diamond, and semiconductor donors and acceptors--feature prominently in a survey chapter on cavity-based single-photon emitters.
