Title: SINGLE-PHOTON SOURCE AND METHOD FOR THE CONTROLLED GENERATION OF PHOTONS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a single-photon source (10) having a semiconductor body (2) and a transducer (3), in which single-photon source the semiconductor body (2) has an active zone (23) for generating single photons, the active zone (3) containing a piezoelectric semiconductor material. The transducer (3) is designed to generate surface waves, the semiconductor body (2) and the transducer (3) being arranged relative to each other such that the surface waves generated by the transducer during operation of the single-photon source can be coupled into the active zone (23). The invention also relates to a method for the controlled generation of photons using surface waves.
