Abstract

Here we propose a mechanism to generate entangled photon pairs that makes use of double dot quantum dot molecules. Molecular biexciton and molecular exciton states allow us to circumvent the which-path problem that, in most cases, makes the use of single quantum dots technologically challenging.
