We propose a scheme for controlling the absorption and RFS of a quantum dot (QD) with broken inversion symmetry interacting with a plasmonic nanostructure. The QD is described as a two-level atom-like system with a permanent dipole moment in the excited state. A linearly polarized laser field drives the optical transition of the QD and produces localized surface plasmons in the MNP. The influence of plasmonic effects between the nanoparticle and the dot is analyzed using the Green tensor method. We found terahertz (THz) emission in the resonance fluorescence spectrum when the laser frequency lies above the transition frequency. The position and strength of the THz peaks is controlled by means of the dot-nanoparticle separation. The quantum nature of the emitted THz photons is analyzed by evaluating the second-order fluorescence intensity correlation function. We found a periodic alternation of photon bunching and anti-bunching with a period that depends on the polarization of the driving field.
