Plasmonic structures combined with stable solid-state quantum emitters are a promising approach to integrated photonic circuits and quantum optics applications. One of the main challenges in realizing such structures is the controlled positioning of single plasmonic structures next to a single emitter. To address this challenge, we have developed an electron-beam lithography based technique that enables fabrication of nanostructures aligned with respect to single self-assembled semiconductor quantum dots with nanometer precision.

We have applied our fabrication method to couple excitons in single quantum dots with plasmons in rod-shaped optical antennas. The plasmon-exciton coupling is manifested as a significant change in the polarization state of the photoluminescence. We investigate the strength of the coupling as a function of the position of the quantum dot with respect to the antenna. We observe large variations in the polarization properties of the luminescence as the quantum dot is placed at different positions in the vicinity of an antenna.
