error: u'In this thesis I focus on various methods for a theoretical and experimental characterisation of InAs quantum dots embedded in micropillars. My thesis is structured as follows:
In the \x0crst chapter an introduction and a motivation for the fundamental research with quantum dots in micropillars is provided. Chapter 2 contains a basic description of self-assembled InAs quantum dots, their fabrication process as well as an overview of their physical properties. In the third chapter micropillars are described. At the end of this chapter a powerful method for the simulation of eigenmodes of micropillars is presented. Chapter 4 provides a short overview of the photon statistics of di\x0berent light sources and introduces the second-order correlation function.
Chapter 5 summarizes the experimental work of my thesis. It can be organized into three parts, in which the \x0crst provides an overview of our experimental setup.
The second part describes the basic measurements for an optical characterisation of quantum dots in micropillars and the third presents the most important experimental results.
A conclusion and an outlook at the end of my thesis provide a short summary of the major achievements and describe projects of our research group in the near future.'
