As of October 1st 2011, Michał Świderski has been awarded a stipend in our project and became a group member
Control of exciton levels in quantum dots: atomistic theory as a step towards entangled photon pairs generation program
We intend to develop atomistic theory, implement high-performance computational tools and perform large scale, parallel calculation of exciton fine structure splitting in semiconductor quantum dots. The project will be conducted in co-operation with leading international scientific groups from NRC (Canada) and NIST (USA). The project, carried out in the frame of Homing Plus program of the Foundation for Polish Science, will result in development of control of exciton levels in quantum dot, aiming at efficient generation of entangled photon pairs at telecommunication relevant wavelength.
