Abstract

The high purity single-photon emission from individual z-oriented polymer nanostructure demonstrating the utility of these nanomaterials as robust single photon sources in quantum information processing applications was demonstrated. It was shown that oriented nanostructures from single molecules of a conducting polymer acts as highly robust room-temperature single-photon sources. The feasibility of a push-button' technology for polymer-based single-photon sources in photonic-based quantum information processing applications was also suggested. These single-chain macromolecular strutures were roughly 10 nm in size and have significant enhanced spectral and photophysical properties.
