Researchers at the University of Maryland, College Park have proposed a method for deterministically positioning single colloidal QDs with the desired spectral properties inside micro-cavity resonators using micro-fluidics coupled with a technique called electroosmotic flow control. This unique approach allows nanometer scale positioning accuracy, which cannot be achieved by any other known method.
Deterministically coupling quantum dots to photonic crystal cavity waveguide networks would enable a wide range of novel applications in quantum computing and quantum networking. In the area of quantum computing the methods that have been explored by the researchers could form the basis for implementing scalable universal quantum computation via two promising approaches, Linear optical Quantum Computation (LOQC) and quantum computation based on Dipole Induced Transparency (DIT).
