Abstract

We present modelling results for efficient coupling of nanodiamonds containing single colour centres to polymer structures on distributed Bragg reflectors. We explain how hemispherical and super-spherical structures redirect the emission of light into small numerical apertures. Coupling efficiencies of up to 68.5% within a numerical aperture of 0.34 are found. Further, we show how Purcell factors up to 4.5 can be achieved for wavelength scale hemispheres coated with distributed Bragg reflectors. We conclude with an experimental proposal for the realisation of these structures.
