Colloidal quantum dots have garnered active research interest as quantum emitters due to their robust synthesis process and straightforward integration with nanophotonic platforms. However, obtaining indistinguishable photons from the colloidal quantum dots at room temperature is fundamentally challenging because they suffer from an extremely large dephasing rate... Here we propose an experimentally feasible method of obtaining indistinguishable single photons from an incoherently pumped solution-processed colloidal quantum dot coupled to a system of nanocavities. We show that by coupling a colloidal quantum dot to a pair of silicon nitride cavities, we can obtain comparable performance of a single photon source from colloidal quantum dots as other leading quantum emitters like defect centers and self-assembled quantum dots. read more
