Abstract

Our recent advances in solid-state cavity quantum electrodynamics and lasing oscillation in single quantum dot (QD)-photonic crystal (PhC) nanocavity coupled systems are discussed. These include the fabrication of high-quality 2-D PhC nanocavities $(Q 50 000)$, which enabled the generation of spontaneous two-photon emission from a single QD, and the realization of lasing oscillation with single QD gain in the strong coupling regime. Moreover, we have fabricated high-quality 3-D PhC nanocavities $(Q \sim 38 500)$, which have facilitated the realization of both lasing oscillation and the Purcell effect. Lasing oscillation in a 1-D PhC nanobeam cavity with gain produced by a few QDs has also been demonstrated.
