Spectroscopie optique de nanostructures GaN/AlN insérées dans des microcavités planaires et des microdisques

Abstract : This thesis addresses the light-matter interaction in nitride nanostructures embedded in optical microcavities. By using micro-photoluminescence experiments, we study the optical properties of GaN/AlN quantum dots embedded in planar microcavities and those of GaN/AlN quantum wells in AlN microdisks.By placing quantum dots in planar microcavities, we are able to modify the emission diagram and increase the collection efficiency. The design of the microcavities is optimized by using numerical simulations based on transfer matrix method with an internal emitter. For an AlN microcavity with AlN/AlGaN Bragg mirrors, we show that the collection efficiency could be theoretical increase by one order of magnitude, which is confirmed by our micro-photoluminescence experiments on single quantum dots. This observation opens the way for advanced studies such as photon correlations experiments in the UV range.The second part of our work is devoted to the realization of a micro-laser operating in the deep-UV range at room-temperature. By using thin GaN/AlN quantum wells (2.8 monolayers), grown on silicon substrate and embedded in AlN microdisks, we observe a laser emission at 275 nm under pulsed optical pumping. This demonstration shows the strong potentiality for future developments of nitride-on-silicon nano-photonics.
