Summary form only given. Full control of the light-matter interaction can be achieved by engineering the carrier and photon states in all-solid-state semiconductor microcavities incorporating nanostructures. We have successfully inserted one-dimensional quantum wires into wavelength size, multidimensional microcavities, i.e. 2D photon wells, 1D wires and 0D boxes. Increasing control over the spontaneous emission process is observed in the spectral, spatial and temporal domain.
