Abstract

In this paper we present modeling results for efficient coupling of nanodiamonds containing single color centres to polymer structures on distributed Bragg reflectors. We explain how hemispherical and super-spherical structures confine light in small numerical apertures, emitted by such deterministically addressed color centres. Coupling efficiencies of up to 68% within a numerical aperture of 0.34 are found. Moreover, we show how Purcell factors up to 6.2 in structured waveguides are achieved.
