2014 (English)In: Applied Physics A: Materials Science & Processing, ISSN 0947-8396, E-ISSN 1432-0630, Vol. 115, no 4, 1093-1101 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The propagation of exciton polaritons in near-field-coupled quantum-dot (QD) chains is modeled by a density-matrix formalism. It is shown that at least for low-temperature operation it is possible using electronically controlled switching by the quantum-confined Stark effect in such QD chains to rival and outperform room-temperature CMOS electronics in footprint and switch energy, though not in speed.
