Confined spins in solids and electronic states of single atoms present two well-studied, contrasting systems which may be suitable for the construction of a hybrid network of complementary quantum devices. However, their disparate physical properties raise the question of the feasibility of realising a direct interface. Here, we present the first successful photonic coupling between a semiconductor quantum dot (QD) and a single atom. We show that resonantly scattered photons from a self-assembled InGaAs QD can be absorbed by a single Ytterbium ion trapped in a high-finesse fibre-based cavity.

An optical link in the near-infrared is formed by bringing the quantum dot into resonance with an atomic Yb+ transition at 935 nm. By monitoring ion state transfer due to quantum dot photon absorption we extract photon absorption rates. We find a peak efficiency of above 1% per QD photon arriving at the ion-cavity system.

Whilst the natural spectral linewidths of the quantum dot and ion transitions differ by a factor of >60, sub linewidth emission spectra have been demonstrated from QDs through low power coherent scattering (s « 1), enabling bandwidth matching to the narrow ion transition. We study the extent to which efficient coupling relies on coherent scattering. Furthermore we observe ion absorption rates dependent on spin state preparation of a negatively charged quantum dot. Based on these results, the exchange of quantum information between these highly contrasting systems is within experimental reach.
