Abstract

We propose a method to generate path-entangled NOON-state photons from quantum dots and coupled nanocavities. In the systems we considered, cavity mode frequencies are tuned close to the biexciton two-photon resonance. Under appropriate conditions, the system can have the target NOON state in the energy eigenstate, as a consequence of destructive quantum interference. The NOON state can be generated by a resonant laser excitation. This method, first introduced for a two-photon NOON state (N=2), can be extended toward a higher NOON state (N>2) based on our recipe, which is applied to the case of N=4 as an example.
