An electrically‐pumped single‐photon source design with a predicted efficiency of 89% is proposed. The design is based on a quantum dot embedded in a photonic nanowire with tailored ends and optimized contact electrodes. Unlike cavity‐based approaches, the photonic nanowire features broadband spontaneous emission control and an improved tolerance towards fabrication imperfections. The various building blocks of the design are analyzed using an elements‐splitting approach.
