Abstract

We demonstrate a deterministic Purcell-enhanced single-photon source realized by integrating an atomically thin WSe2 layer with a circular Bragg grating cavity. The cavity significantly enhances the photoluminescence from the atomically thin layer, and supports single-photon generation with g(2)(0)<0.25. We observe a consistent increase of the spontaneous emission rate for WSe2 emitters located in the center of the Bragg grating cavity. These WSe2 emitters are self-aligned and deterministically coupled to such a broadband cavity, configuring a new generation of deterministic single-photon sources, characterized by their simple and low–cost production and intrinsic scalability
