Abstract: Rabi oscillations between the excited state and the ground state of an exciton in a quantum dot can be used to coherently control the state of a two-level system. Manipulating the state of a two-level systems has applications in quantum computing and creating single photon sources. Rabi oscillations have been amply observed in atoms, free-space quantum dots, and ion traps. However, observing this phenomenon in cavity quantum electrodynamics has shown to be much more demanding. In this thesis we show that Rabi oscillations can also be observed in polarisation non-degenerate cavity-quantum dot systems.
