In-plane excitation and large-scale integration. a Artistic image of in-plane excitation of the nanowire quantum dot. The nanowire QD emission is collected in the waveguide orthogonal to the pump waveguide. b Collected spectrum from the waveguide coupled to the nanowire. c A close-up view of the emission spectrum of the QD and a microscope image of the measured device. The spectrum mainly shows a single exciton peak from the QD emission with no measurable signal from the pump (at ~ 632 nm). Pump signal is efficiently suppressed due to the device geometry decoupling the pump photons from the nanowire emission. di The emission spectrum of six independently and deterministically integrated nanowire quantum emitters operating on the same photonic chip. In-plane excitation was used to excite the nanowire quantum dots. This paves the way for large-scale integration and excitation of multiple quantum emitters on-chip either using a single off-chip source or an integrated electrically pumped source with phase shifters and routers37. j An artistic image of the fabricated device (shown in inset) containing six nanowires encapsulated in SiN waveguides
