The two fields of quantum optics and semiconductor nanostructures were both successful on their own, but their merging has also become an important research area. Here physicists describe recent developments in single quantum dot systems, nanolasers with quantum dot emitters, interaction between light and matter in semiconductor nanostructures, semiconductor cavity quantum electrodynamics, and ultrafast phenomena. Among the topics are quantum optics with single quantum dots in photonic crystal cavities, emission properties of photonic crystal nanolasers, photon statistics and entanglement in phonon-assisted quantum light emission from semiconductor quantum dots, all-solid-state quantum optics employing quantum dots in photonic crystals, femtosecond quantum optics with semiconductor nanostructures, and coherent optoelectronics with quantum dots.
