We report here the first observation of vacuum Rabi splitting in a single quantum dot (QD) embedded in a H1 photonic crystal nanocavity by photoluminescence measurement. The QD emission was tuned into a cavity mode by controlling the temperature. At the resonance condition, clear anticrossing with a Rabi splitting of ∼124 μeV was observed, where the cavity mode possesses the smallest mode volume V∼0.43 (λ/n)3 among strongly coupled QD-cavity systems reported to date.
