Long-distance radiative excitation transfer between quantum dots in
disordered photonic crystal waveguides

Momchil Minkov, Vincenzo Savona
We theoretically investigate the magnitude and range of the photon-mediated interaction between two quantum dots embedded in a photonic crystal waveguide, including fabrication disorder both in the crystal and in the dot positioning. We find that disorder-induced light localization has a drastic effect on the excitation transfer rate - as compared to an ideal structure - and that this rate varies widely among different disorder configurations. Nevertheless, we also find that significant rates of 50 micro-eV at a range of 10 micro-meters can be achieved in realistic systems.
