Phonons assist in creating an excitation-dominated state, or population inversion, in a single quantum dot—an effect that could be used to realize single-photon sources.
Combining two trapping techniques reduces the motion of a levitated bead close to the point where quantum effects should become observable.
Researchers show that a single photon can transfer an excitation from a quantum dot to an ion.
