Single photons are the cornerstones of many applications in quantum technologies, from quantum computing to quantum networks. A new technology for the generation of single-photons has recently emerged, allowing a ten-time increase in efficiency with near-unity quantum purity. These single-photon sources are based on semiconductor quantum dots in optical microcavities.
