Master's Thesis Defense by Martin Hayhurst Appel
Spin Dynamics of a Negatively Charged Quantum Dot in a Nanobeam Waveguide
The thesis presents an optical investigation of spin dynamics with an emphasis on optical spin pumping. By studying spin pumping the spin relaxation time, spin pumping time, Overhauser field dispersion and electron/hole g-factors are determined. A notable application of electron spins in quantum dots is the production of photonic cluster states using the Rudolph-Lindner protocol.
