Abstract

Impressive progress has been achieved in controlling the spontaneous emission rate for emitters in Nanophotonic structures[1,2], such as microcavities[1,3], photonic crystals[4] and nano-antennas[5]. In all cases, however, the modification of the emission is stationary in time. Thus, the emission rate is time-independent and the distribution of photon emission times are stochastic and follow an exponential distribution in the weak coupling regime. Here, we propose to quickly the environment of an ensemble of emitters in time, ultrafast, during the time that they emit photons.
