Two-photon interference (TPI) is of fundamental importance for the realization of quantum communication schemes such as the quantum repeater. Here, we report on TPI experiments in Hong-Ou-Mandel configuration using deterministically fabricated, remote single-photon sources . By using 3D in-situ electron-beam lithography, we fabricate quantum-light sources at desired wavelengths by integrating pre-selected semiconductor quantum dots into monolithic microlenses. Exciting the quantum dot microlenses into their p-shell at 80 MHz, the individual "single photon" sources exhibit TPI visibilities of 49 % and 22 %, respectively. When examining the TPI of photons emitted by two remote sources, we measure an uncorrected TPI visibility of 29 %. This agrees with the visibility predicted from the dephasing of the individual emitters. Due to the broadband increase in photon extraction efficiency (> 20 nm), quantum dot microlenses are a promising technology platform for future entanglement swapping experiments employing entangled photon pairs from remote biexciton-exciton radiative cascades.
