The authors present steps toward the experimental realization of indistinguishable single photon sources based on independent unstrained GaAs quantum dots (QDs), which are embedded in planar cavities to improve the light collection efficiency. The emission lines of two QDs are brought into resonance and overlapped at a beam splitter. The coherence properties of the emitted photons are investigated by measuring the first-order field correlation function. Despite the fact that the short dephasing time of the selected QDs prevents us to observe quantum interference between the two photons, the approach could be applied to other QDs.
