This year NANOSENSORS™ celebrates its 30th anniversary. We are celebrating this with the whole #AFMcommunity by giving away NANOSENSORS™ Fun Gratings especially created for this occasion @BiophysicalSoc Meeting 2020 in San Diego at NanoAndMore USA booth no. 818 this week.
Pick up your grating, switch on the AFM, start scanning, discover the images that are hidden in the grating and celebrate 30 years of NANOSENSORS high quality AFM probes with us.
important building block for future integrated nanophotonic devices is the
scalable on-chip interfacing of single photon emitters and quantum memories
with single optical modes.*
In the article “On-chip integration of single solid-state quantum emitters with a SiO2 photonic platform” Florian Böhm, Niko Nikolay, Christoph Pyrlik, Jan Schlegel, Andreas Thies, Andreas Wicht,Günther Tränkle and Oliver Benson present the deterministic integration of a single solid-state qubit, the nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center, with a photonic platform consisting exclusively of SiO2grown thermally on a Si substrate.* The platform stands out by its ultra-low fluorescence and the ability to produce various passive structures such as high-Q micro resonators and mode-size converters. By numerical analysis an optimal structure for the efficient coupling of a dipole emitter to the guided mode could be determined. Experimentally, the integration of a preselected NV emitter was performed with an atomic force microscope and the on-chip excitation of the quantum emitter as well as the coupling of single photons to the guided mode of the integrated structure could be demonstrated. The authors approach shows the potential of this platform as a robust nanoscale interface of on-chip photonic structures with solid-state qubits.*
After optically verifying the successful placement of the nanodiamond hosting a single nitrogen-vacancy ( NV ) center by performing a confocal scan, the article describes how the nanoparticle is pushed to the inner edge of the rib waveguide in a subsequent step, using a NANOSENSORS™ AdvancedTEC™ATEC-NC tip-view AFM probe.*
