The spin initialization of a hybrid system consisting of a p-doped semiconductor quantum dot coupled to a gold bowtie nanoantenna is analyzed. The quantum dot is described as a four-level atom-like system using the density matrix formalism. The two lower levels are Zeeman-split hole spin states and the two upper levels correspond to positively charged excitons with a
spin-up, spin-down hole pair and opposite spin electron. The gold bowtie nanoantenna is placed in close proximity to the quantum dot. A linearly polarized laser field drives two of the optical transitions of the quantum dot
and produces localized surface charge oscillations in the nanoantenna which act back upon the quantum dot thus changing the effective field felt by it. The angular frequencies of those charge oscillations are very different along its two principal axes, resulting in an anisotropic modification of the spontaneous
emission rates of the allowed optical transitions of the quantum dot. These changes are accounted for by using the Green tensor method, and result in a faster spin state initialization than that of the isolated quantum dot.
We also show that the presence of the nanoantenna dramatically modifies the optical properties of the fluorescent photons, either in the spectral and in the
time domain.
