In this talk I will introduce some basic principles of semiconductor quantum dots and show how their discrete energy spectrum can be used to generate entangled photon pairs and spin photon entanglement. I will show, how a virtual level and two photon excitation can be used to excite a (single photon) forbidden transition. And if the time allows, I will show how different degrees of freedom can be used simultaneously to generate hyper-entangled photon pairs.

(The JQI summer school is for students and postdocs, but others are welcome to join for refreshments afterwards; Discussion with refreshments at 5:00pm)
