Abstract

We demonstrate heralded single photon generation in an ultra-compact III-V semiconductor photonic crystal. Photons are generated with a coincidence-to-accidental ratio over 60 and a g(2)(0) of 0.06 representing the record fidelity to a single photon state for a semiconductor waveguide device.
