In many InGaN/GaN single photon emitting structures, significant contamination of the single photon stream by background emission is observed. Here, utilizing InGaN/GaN quantum dots incorporated in mesoporous distributed Bragg reflectors within micropillars, we demonstrate methods for the reduction of this contamination. Using the resulting devices, autocorrelation measurements were performed using an HBT set-up and thus we report a working quantum dot device in the III-nitride system utilizing mesoporous DBRs. Uncorrected g(2)(0) autocorrelation values are shown to be significantly improved when excited with a laser at longer wavelengths and lower powers. Through this optimization, we report a g(2)(0) value from a blue-emitting InGaN/GaN quantum dot of 0.126 ± 0.003 without any form of background correction.
