Host: O. Gulseren

ABSTRACT — Conned spins in solids, such as semiconductor quantum dots, are exemplary systems to generate high quality single photons and, in parallel, sustain a ground-state manifold correlated to these photons. This
spin-photon correlation opens realistic routes for distributed quantum networks, oer insight into the fundamental properties of the studied material systems, and even allow fundamental concepts in quantum
optics to be investigated. I will highlight recent research progress in semiconductor quantum dots and oer an overview of future directions.

Mete Atatüre received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1996 from Bilkent University Physics Department in Turkey. Then, he joined the Quantum Imaging Laboratory at Boston University for his PhD studies. From 2002 to 2007, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Quantum Photonics Group at ETH Zurich. He joined the Cavendish Laboratory in June 2007 as a University Lecturer, was promoted to a Readership in 2011 and to a Professorship in 2015. Atomic, Mesoscopic and Optical Physics Research group. Current research eorts in his group include optical control of single and multiple quantumdot spins, high-resolution spectroscopy of diamond-based emitters, solid-state cavity-QED and nanoplasmonics.
