In this paper, we review some recent cavity quantum electrodynamic (CQED) experiments with single quantum dot exciton coupled to photonic crystal cavities, performed in our group. We show how the coupled quantum-dot/cavity system can be used to modulate light with at a very fundamental level with very low power and discuss some applications of these low power modulators.
