Summary form only given. Pure and deterministic single-photon sources, obtained by coupling a semiconductor quantum dot (QD) to a photonic crystal (PhC) cavity, constitute a key component for quantum photonic integrated circuits (QPICs) [1]. These sources are commonly excited by a laser pump, which involves some practical limitations in scaling the number of integrated cavity-emitter nodes and is hardly compatible with on-chip single-photon detectors. Here, we present the first demonstration of electrical injection of single dot lines coupled to photonic crystal modes. The latter can be electrically re-configured to bring multiple cavity-emitters into energy resonance.
