Shaping single photons

PSN researchers have demonstrated the temporal shaping of photons emitted by single quantum dots in photonic crystal cavities.

This result was reported in a paper published this week in Nature Communications (link to http://www.nature.com/ncomms/2014/141215/ncomms6786/full/ncomms6786.html)
