We propose a system for guiding plasmon-enhanced polarized single photons into optical nanowire (ONW) guided modes. It is shown that spontaneous emission properties of quantum emitters (QEs) can be strongly enhanced in the presence of gold nanorod dimer (GNRD) leading to the emission of highly polarized and bright single photons. We have calculated that a high Purcell factor of 279, coupling efficiency of 11 %, and degree of polarization (DOP) of single photons is estimated to be as high as 99.57% in the guided modes of ONW by suitably placing a QE on an optimized location of the GNRD system. This proposed hybrid quantum system can be in-line with fiber networks, opening the door for possible quantum information processing and quantum cryptography applications.
