Abstract

This project concentrates in the theoretical study of a system constituted by a double semiconductor quantum dots coupled by tunneling inside a high finesse optical cavity. This system is a promising candidate for applications in quantum memories based on slow light effect. Double quantum dots also called, quantum dots molecule have a great flexibility and experimental ability to change both their energy spectrum and their structural geometry through of external electric fields. In this way, the coherent optical control of charge carriers in these nanostructures allows an investigation of several process of quantum interference, such as tunneling induced transparency. In this case, the strong tunneling coupling parameter between the quantum dots plays the role of the optical control field in the electromagnetically induced transparency phenomenon, and it can be appropriately controlled through of a voltage applied in the growth direction of the nanostructure. Simultaneously, we consider the quantum dots isolated inside a resonant cavity, considering the intermediate and strong coupling regimes. In order to use this system for application in quantum memories, is very important we consider the interaction of the confined carriers in the dot with a localized ensemble of N nuclear spins by hyperfine interaction, which in turn is a major source in this kind of system. Due to the long lifetime of nuclear spins (on order of 1-5 ms), we are particularly interested in their potential in application in quantum memories, in which their interaction with the quantum fields are mediated by the hyperfine interaction between nuclear spins and electrons and hole spins on the quantum dots.
