  • Abstract:

    Efficient collection of photons from solid-state single-photon emitters, like quantum dots, molecules, or defect centers in diamond, is a very demanding task. Here, we introduce parabolic micro-antennas fabricated by two-photon direct laser-writing to enhance the collection efficiency by directing emitted light into a small solid angle. The antennas can be fabricated on-site at the position of a pre-selected single-photon emitter.
